Unique Student Identifier (USI)

IT IS AS UNIQUE AS YOU ARE…

Everyone who undertakes vocational education and training in Australia must hold a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

The USI is a unique number – just for you – which allows you to obtain a complete record of your training achievements from a single online source.

It means you cannot lose a qualification and makes it easier to keep track of your education and training history (which is great for when you need to apply for a job!).

If you don’t have a USI, you won’t be able to receive recognition for your training – which would be a real shame.

OK, so I need a USI. What do I do?

Visit www.usi.gov.au and follow the prompts.

You will need at least one or two forms of ID from the list below:

  • Driver’s Licence
  • Medicare Card
  • Australian Passport
  • Australian Birth Certificate
  • Citizenship Certificate
  • Visa (with Non-Australian Passport)
  • Certificate of Registration by Descent
  • ImmiCard

When you create your USI please ensure you use your name exactly as it appears on your form of ID or you might get stuck.

Already have a USI?

Too easy! Just bring it with you at enrolment time.

Need help?

Go to www.usi.gov.au for more information, or speak to one of the delivery team or Client Services staff at your local campus.
