Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account. From 1 January 2015 if you are undertaking nationally recognised VET training you will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students’ VET records are not lost.

USI gives you access to your online USI account which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 3AW88YH9U5.

If you are currently enrolled in one of our courses we recommend you sign up for your USI today.  All Australian students will be required to have one after 1 January 2015 so you won’t be able to graduate without one. Once you create your USI you will need to give your USI to each training provider you study with.

The steps for getting one are simple and outlined in the video above and if want more information check out the USI Website by clicking here (http://www.usi.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx)
