ISICThe International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is your passport to fantastic discounts and services at home and around the world. The ISIC card is the only internationally-recognized student ID and ISIC card holders are members of a truly global club. Every year more than 4.5 million students from 120 countries use their student card to take advantage of offers on travel, shopping, museums and more, worldwide.

Discounts at Home & Abroad

You'll use your ISIC card to save money while studying or traveling abroad, and it's just as useful here at home. There are tens of thousands of discounts on offer, so check what's available at your local restaurants, cinemas and shops. The ISIC card is a real student lifestyle card. Keep it in your pocket wherever you go – it'll come in handy time and time again.

Travel Insurance

The ISIC  includes travel insurance to cover you while traveling abroad. ISIC Basic cards have a very minimum insurance coverage, but not enough to be your sole source of insurance. You can upgrade your ISIC Basic card to the ISIC Premium card, which carries a sufficient amount of international medical insurance to cover you on a UTA study abroad program.
