Unique Student Identifier
The Unique Student Identifier (USI) scheme, enabled by the Student Identifiers Act 2014, allows learners to access a single online record (transcript) of their VET achievements. The scheme also allows for reliable confirmation of these achievements by employers and other RTOs.
A 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.
Under legislation, you must have a USI to receive a certificate for nationally recognised training. An RTO can only issue certification after they have received your USI.
How do I apply for a USI?
Go to https://www.usi.gov.au/
Click on Create a USI and then follow instructions.
If you are an international, overseas or an offshore student please go to the following link for more information: https://www.usi.gov.au/students/create-your-usi/international-overseas-and-offshore-students
You will need to put your USI on your enrolment form that you will fill out at the beginning of your course so please save your USI.
What do I do if I have forgotten my USI…..
If you have done nationally accreditated training since 2015, you will probably have a USI. Please go to this link to check:
