About ISIC Card
The ISIC card allows students the world over to prove their official student status and make the most of thousands of targeted student benefits and discounts in over ۱۳۰ countries.
Developed to help nurture cross-cultural understanding and international exchange, the card originally provided students with access to exclusive discounts on travel opportunities, allowing cardholders to discover and interact with new countries, cultures and languages at reduced rates.
Now, firmly in the digital age, the ISIC card has evolved to best meet the needs of the modern day student. Although travel benefits will always remain central to the card, ISIC cardholders also gain preferential and discounted access to over 150,000 products, services and experiences relevant to all aspects of student life. There are a multitude of offers available to ISIC cardholders, from educational courses, software licenses, digital communications, public transport and magazine subscriptions, to music streaming, cafés and eateries, music festivals, theme parks, sporting events, world heritage sites and more!.
The ISIC card has been endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1968. The card is recognised by universities, academic institutions, student unions, national governments, financial institutions and ministries of education around the world.
?Can I use my card as proof of identity
The ISIC card is proof of student status and can be used to identify yourself in different places in multiple counties worldwide. However, some countries may require a different form of personal identification so please check with the local regulations in advance if you are travelling there. Please note, the ISIC card is not accepted as a form of identity in the U.S., where only government issued forms of identity are accepted in all parts of the country.

The Office of Student Affairs (Office of the Non-Iranian Students General) supports receiving an international student card, especially for international university students. This card, while making it easier for them to provide international services, enables them to use national and international card services. In addition, courses are provided to provide effective adaptation and socialization of international students in Iran and provide international students with cultural, artistic and scientific services.
In addition to 35,000 services and discounts in Iran and around the world, Iranian students can receive an international faculty and student card to receive discounts at international conferences.
It is recommended to use a valid ISIC International Identity Card to validate their academic overseas travel.
It should be noted that 15,000 tomans of student membership fees and faculty members who use this panel to register their cards have been borne by the Office of Non-Iranian Students’ Affairs.

بنده دانشجوی سال سوم رشته علوم سیاسی و اصالتاً افغانستانی هستم. منم خواستم حسمو با شما دوستان در میان بگذارم: بنده در دانشگاه تهران با سازمان آشنا شدم و خوشحالم که برای رفاه حال دانشجویان از هر تلاشی دریغ نمیشود و از این بابت از سازمان بسیار سپاسگزارم.
بنده چند سالی هست با سازمان آشنایی دارم ولی به شرایطی تازه وارد سازمان شدم چون بنده در شرایط خاص تبعه بودن نمیتوانستم عضو بشم تا اینکه توانستم گذرنامه خود را بگیرم و عضو شوم و از سازمان تقاضا دارم برای اتباع در ایران به خصوص شرایط بیمه دانشجویی تامین اجتماعی را در سیستم خود قرار دهند. با سپاس فراوان.

Time left to use the discount
There are many programs, admission fees, and memberships that are discounted if you are a student. Having some verifiable proof you are a student will help with that.
Beyond that, I can’t think of much.
The primary advantage is that you can avail a lot of discounts as mentioned in the quote.
I have personally used the discounts to visit many tourist places in Europe (in 2012) which otherwise would have costed me about 100 Euros extra.
To name a few, you can visit the famous Louvre Museum in Paris for free after 6 PM if you have it.
You can visit Colosseum and Roman Forum at half the ticket price in Rome.
In Germany, you get about 20-30% discount in nearly all the museums.
What requirement needed to apply ISIC card?
on the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) tab. Click on What documents do I need to apply for the card. You will see a list of documents. Your can purchase the card online or visit the local office which may be a college, university or travel office in the country where you currently reside. The current price for the card is $25.00 and includes many student discounts.
ISIC and ISEC both cards are international identity card but ISIC is endorsed by UNESCO and provides 20,000+ discounts and benefits in Education, Travel, Culture, Entertainment, Sports and more, in 125+ countries at 1,50,000 discount locations.
Students can save money with an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) that offers so many discounts including travel and shopping. Other youth discounts can be combined with your ISIC discount in some cases giving you even more savings. For example ACPRail International – https://www.acprail.com/isic-dis… offers a youth discount of up to 35% for travelers aged 12 to 27 on Eurail Global Passes and when you combine the youth discount and the savings of $10 with the ISIC card your savings is even better. If you do your research you will find many other companies offering discounts to ISIC cardholders. Go to the ISIC website for more information.
As their website reads: “Students and teaching staff members are eligible to use all JetBrains tools for free upon verification based on domain or ISIC card.”
So, if you’re a student get the edu version, it’s full fledged and free. The community one has limited functions.
Museums and other venues like this – probably yes. You can make a ISIC card to be sure.
There are no discounts like that for transportation in Berlin. You only get a student discount if you are enrolled at a Berlin university.
Discounts for food are also mostly unheard of.
ISIC is probably the most popular in Europe.
As with any discount cards projects it’s really hard to make sure that participating companies do provide discounts promised. Such a program requires big infrastructure. Discount card projects are dinasours these days. They need to compete with all tpe of loyalty programs and projects like Groupon (not matter if Groupon itself is a good business).
Thus while having some sense for students those programs are not that good business.
