Unique Student Identifier (USI) 

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a personnalised identification number code that is unique to each student within the educational system. It is used to create a secure online record of an individual’s recognised training and qualifications attained in Australia. The USI is a requirement for all individuals undertaking nationally recognised training, such as vocational education and training (VET) courses, including apprenticeships and traineeships. 

The USI is designed to provide individuals with a centralised platform where they can access all their training results from various providers. This includes information on completed training units and qualifications in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. The goal is to make it easier for students to compile their VET achievements into a single, authenticated transcript.  

The USI is available online at no cost to the student. This identifier stays with each student throughout their academic journey.  

To create a USI, you need to visit the official USI website (https://www.usi.gov.au/students) and follow the instructions provided. You will be required to provide personal information and complete a verification process to obtain your unique identifier. You must have an Australian Visa before you can apply for a USI.  

Once you get your USI code, keep it safe. Your USI account will give you access to your VET training records and results, anywhere, anytime.
