OSA ISIC Card
The OSA International Student Identity Card (ISIC) allows students to get over 150,000 discounts on shopping, travel, and entertainment worldwide. A one-year ISIC virtual membership costs $30AUD but as we love you so much (you know we do, right? 😉 ) so we have got a better deal for you.
Our OSA ISIC costs
