Unique Student Identifier (USI) Website

Monday, October 20 2014

For the past few weeks the Unique Student Identifier (USI) website has been live. The website allows VET students to create their own USI and provides information to training organisations.

All students studying nationally recognised training in Australia from 1 January 2015, will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI is an account (or reference number) made up of numbers and letters. The USI will allow your students online access to their training records and results (transcript) through their online USI account.

  • A USI is required for your new and continuing students undertaking nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses to receive their statement of attainment or qualification.
  • The USI will be available online and at no cost to your students.
  • This USI will stay with your students for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is undertaken from the 1 January 2015.
  • Your students can access their USI accounts online from computers, tablets or their smart phones anytime.
  • The process is the same for all students to obtain a USI or for you, the training organisation, to create a USI on behalf of your students, with the student’s permission.
