VR approved student cards

As a student studying in Finland you get a discount on train tickets if you have a student union student card approved by VR.
 

When tickets are inspected onboard the train you need a student card approved by VR or a temporary certificate of student status for discount on VR trains if you have not received your student card yet. If you do not have a student card or a certificate from the education institution, the conductor will collect an additional charge onboard the train.

Get student discount on trains with a temporary certificate

You can prove your eligibility for a student discount on VR’s trains with a temporary certificate until you receive your actual student card. The temporary certificate must be printed out and filled in appropriately. You also need the stamp from your education institution on the certificate.

A temporary certificate is valid for 3 months from the date of the stamp given by the education institution. You will also find the certificate in the Wilma system of education institutions.

Please note! An ISIC card or other international student card does not entitle you to a student discount.
