European Student Identifier (ESI)

The European Student Identifier is a new feature introduced to uniquely identify students on international exchanges. This means that students going on Erasmus exchanges can log in to all the services and the institutions can exchange information about those students. In this video, team lead Trust & Identity Michiel Schok explains the advantages of ESI. For more (technical) information:


InAcadamia is a pan-European service - co-developed by SURF - that allows students and staff to use SURFconext to prove easily and securely that they are studying or working at an institution. This gives them discounts on Spotify, among other things. Technical product manager Niels van Dijk explains in the video why we at SURFconext have worked on this.
