Kiwis denied student travel concessions in NSW & VIC

A Sydney Morning Herald article by Kaitlin Alexander, a Kiwi UNSW PhD student, explains how New Zealand students in NSW are denied discounted public transport, despite being domestic students.

The NSW government intentionally passed a racially discriminatory legislation to prevent international students from being able to access student discounts on public transit.
