  • Student card, student ID on a mobile phone or school ID card for apprentices, confirming that you are a student/apprentice this semester
  • Documentation from the school or training enterprise confirming that you are in education this semester, together with a bank card, driver's licence, passport or other form of photo ID

  • If you are a foreign student, you must bring proof of identity and a letter of admission from the educational institution
  • The documentation must state your name, date of birth and educational institution, and that it is valid for this semester
  • Student IDs for the spring semester are valid up to and including August, and student IDs for the autumn semester are valid until the end of January. For those concluding their studies, the last date on which they can activate a new student ticket is thus 31 July and 31 December.
  • For apprentices/trainees, valid documentation is either
    • a personal ID card from an enterprise, marked 'Apprentice' or 'Trainee', or
    • a copy of an apprenticeship/traineeship contract, or
    • confirmation from the enterprise that you are an apprentice/trainee, stating the duration of the apprenticeship/traineeship contract and your name and date of birth.
