One of the benefits of studying is having the right to concessions. These discounts may apply to public transport, health care, travel, entertainment tickets, etc. We'll go over some big ones here, but make sure to always check if you can't use your student concession, especially when going to the movies, a show, or exhibitions.

Please note that concessions may not be available to non-permanent residents of Australia.

Health care

Health care concessions are offered by the Australian Government through Centrelink.

Public transport
