Unique Student Identifier (USI)

3 October 2014

From January 1st 2015, if you're studying nationally recognised training in Australia, you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI)

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account.

When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). One of the main benefits of the USI is the ability to provide students with easy access to their training records and results (transcript) throughout your life.

The USI will be available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is undertaken from when the USI comes into effect.
