You know what’s the best thing about being a student? The student discounts and deals! From discounted movie tickets to special offers in restaurants and shops, these offers can really help you save money while still enjoying the best Melbourne has to offer.

Retail and Shopping

Melbourne offers numerous discounts for students when it comes to shopping. Many popular clothing brands like Myer or electronic stores like JB Hi-Fi and Apple offer fantastic student discounts. Don’t forget to mention that you’re a student at the counter and show your Student ID and you should be all good. If you prefer shopping online, you can visit websites like UNiDAYS or Student Edge. Just sign up with your student email and you’ll find plenty of student discounts.

Dining Out

Eating out doesn’t have to be expensive, especially as a student in Melbourne. Many restaurants or cafes, especially ones near your university offer student discounts. But if you don’t have time to research on which places offer the best discount, just download EatClub! EatClub offers discounted dining or take away options for various restaurants in Melbourne. So if you don’t have time to cook, you can just eat out without spending too much money.

Entertainment and Leisure

This is where your Student ID comes in handy. Most movie theatres like HOYTS or IMAX offer student or concession prices. Entertainment venues like ACMI, Melbourne Museum, NGV and Luna Park also offer concession prices for students for special exhibitions. So don’t miss out on all the fun and bring your Student ID anywhere!


The last but might be the best discount you can get is discounts on Myki! As an international student, you can save up to 50% off your public transport. Make sure to check their website for more details to see if your Uni is included. The best part is you can use your Student Travel Pass on all your travels, so it doesn’t have to be just to Uni, but also if you’re going out with friends.

Being an international student doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun due to budget concerns. As long as you’re taking advantage of our student deals, you can enjoy almost everything at a discounted price. Just make sure you bring your Student ID, and happy saving!
