The ISIC card, created by students in 1953 is the only internationally accepted proof of student status, endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and over 150 governmental institutions.
The ISIC card plays a key supporting role in improving intercultural understanding, increasing educational opportunities and facilitating student life through international status recognition and the provision of exclusive opportunities and benefits to students globally.
The ISIC card is valid in over 135 countries and provides access to over 150,000 benefits, services and exclusive discounts.
Cooperating with over 1,500 academic institutions and local governments, the ISIC provides an internationally proven mechanism of facilitating both social and economic contributions to education and social welfare.
The internationally proven concepts and unified standards of the ISIC help to form a foundation for partnership between governmental, educational and private sectors.
