*According to the definition of the Ministers of Education of the European Member States of UNESCO (Vienna, 1967), full-time student status is defined by an annual minimum of 15 hours of classes per week for 12 weeks. The minimum age is 12 years and there is no maximum age.

The ISIC card history

In 1953, at the 3rd International Student Conference, French, European and international students asked for an international recognition. Thus, was born the International Student Identity Card -the ISIC card.

Since 1968, UNESCO officially endorses the ISIC card and recognizes it as the only internationally accepted proof of full-time student status. Today, the ISIC card is used by 5 million students in over 130 countries. It gives students access to thousands of services and benefits worldwide.

The ISIC card with your school identity

Today, more than 200 academic institutions in France co-brand their student card with ISIC to get worldwide validity.
