The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is the only globally recognized student identity card, which is exclusively endorsed by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). The ISIC is selected and used by over 4.5 million students globally so that they can avail student facilities in other cities and countries, such as libraries. Students of recognised universities and colleges from all around the world are eligible for the ISIC card and can become the part of global student community by registering with the ISIC. The card is issued throughout 120 countries, giving students access to over 40,000 benefits worldwide at more than 100,000 locations.
