ESNA testimonials
Jo Ritzen
“Without ESNA you are not well informed on what is happening in European universities. Many developments take simultaneously place in different countries. You only notice if you see the broad coverage of ESNA and understand the similarity in circumstances which bring about the same kind of pressures and dilemmas. ESNA is a must to understand yourself.”

Jo Ritzen, former Dutch Minister of Education and Science and president of Universiteit Maastricht

“ESNA provides me with up-to-date easy-to-read news on what’s going on in HE in Europe. For a policy analyst this knowledge is crucial.”

Jesper Risom, Head of Section, Danish University and Property Agency, Copenhagen
Michael Hartmer
“You are on the right track. If you flick through the newspapers, it says in Paris the students strike; in Finland they have problems with the chancellor etc. These anecdotes are purely coincidental. On the contrary, a durative, meaningfull report, one which also corresponds with structural features and can be read well, such a newsletter is missing. In my opinion, ESNA has great prospects for the future. I would read that.”

Dr. Michael Hartmer, Geschäftsführer des Deutschen Hochschulverbandes (DHV), Bonn

“No other service equals ESNA’s standard of higher education news. Not only does ESNA keep you up-to-date on the developments in the E.U. and its major Member States. It also helps to understand the periphery of the European Higher Education Area like Eastern Europe, Balkans and the Mediterranean region whose important developments and conflicts remain nearly unnoticed by the other sources of information.
I also appreciate the extensive media review, the exploration of non-English sources and the effort to function as an observatory of student life, mobility and the social dimension in higher education.”

Pırıl Akın, Academic Specialist, The Council of Higher Education (YÖK), European Union and International Relations Office, Ankara

“We at EUROSTUDENT focus our work on providing a regular snapshot of European students‘ study and living conditions. However, in order to understand the snapshot, you need information on the debates and policy developments behind the phenomena you see in the data. This is where ESNA proves a valuable source of up-to-date, wide-reaching, but concise information. “
