  1. HII am of the view that all stdudents should get the travel consession. Some students under the AusAID and locals are given the consessions and we are not. Afterall we are also students . A Big Discrimination indeed! Very costly to travel between our residence and the University. Please do something, the seed of discrimination should not be there? University has the moral obligation to solve the issue or else which is the appropriate body to resolve this issue?

  2. I agree with you about the travel consessions. Unfortunately Unimates cannot do anything about that. You have to express your concerns to SUPRA the students council. At the end of the day it is upto the Australian govt to decide who gets the consession and who doesn’t. We are all International students here at Unimates and we all go through the same thing with travel! Hope you feel better now, u are not alone.

  3. I’ve been here for just over a month now, and I’ve found that the best way to get used to Australia is to accept things as they are. I agree with you that we international students should get concession fare, and I think we’re getting a raw deal, but the fact is that we don’t. Life as an international student just costs more than for locals here in Australia.Is it a “moral obligation” to cut us a deal? Maybe, maybe not, but the NSW Transit Authority loses money already on the ferries, buses, and trains. So, my theory is that they charge us more, because we have less recourse as we are not citizens.It’s not fair, it’s not fun, but it is the way it is. I am in complete agreement with you and think that it should be changed. Good luck with that. 🙂
