While being in Australian, an International Student can have a lifetime experience. However, it might also be challenging to find a work-life balance, especially with the cost of accommodation, utilities, transport, tuition fees, leisure activities, among others. Australia has so many things to offer, and many enterprises have committed to supporting students in their education and experience abroad. Thus, students can access discounts on online shopping, apps and in-store with highly-recognised brands.
Discounts available to International Students!
UNiDAYS & Student Beans
Unidays and Student Beans, for example, are online platforms where students can create an account and access a wide range of items, including Fashion, beauty, lifestyle, Technology, Food & furniture. Students can shop directly with world-wide enterprises on these two websites at a discounted fare. Depending on the product and brand, students can enjoy up to 50% off, including technology products. Students need to verify their student status through the University or College portal to unlock the discount codes.
Student flights (today known as Student Universe) offer special tariffs and deals in flight tickets, tours and accommodation for students and people under 30s. Thus, you can save big time when travelling interstate or internationally when studying in Australia. To access these savings, you would be required to present a valid student or proof of age card to confirm your eligibility for the discounted fares.
Like UNiDAYS, Student Edge offers discounts on specific fashion and technological devices. However, its forte is the promotion of food and entertainment activities. Therefore, if you are a student in Australia, you can enjoy Churros, Movie tickets and skydive with up to 50% off. isn’t it great?
Music Streaming Programs
Spotify, iTunes, and other music streaming providers offer student subscription discounts. These can save you up to 50 per cent on the original price, paying only $5.99 a month for a premium level subscription on both services. To be eligible, you will need to prove your enrolment at an accredited higher education institution in Australia.
Concession Fare on Public Transport
Students living in the Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland or Western Australia are eligible for a concession fare on public transport if they’re studying full-time at an accredited institution. Students in Sydney and Melbourne do not have access to concession cards unless they belong to exchange programs or government-funded scholarships
