Important Information about your Studies - Unique Student Identifier
What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?
A USI is simply an ID number which is required for all students studying in Australia from 1st January, 2015.
How do I apply for my USI?
Go to this page and fill out the online form: http://www.usi.gov.au/create-your-USI/Pages/default.aspx
You will need a form of valid ID, such as Driver’s Licence or a Passport.
What does it give me?
Your USI is like an educational fingerprint. Being able to identify learners this way allows for the development of a centralised recording system for all of your future education & training. Should you lose your copy of an education transcript, this system will allow you to recover it simply and easily. You can also use the system to print or share your qualification records when applying for jobs.
Do I need a USI?
Yes. The Federal Government is asking all training organisations to ensure that their students have a USI. Once this scheme becomes enforceable, your qualification/ transcript cannot be released without your USI being recorded by the training organisation.
