What is an Unique Student Identifier and do I need one?
A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is required for all students undertaking nationally-recognised training, including qualifications, accredited courses, skill sets and units of competency, unless exempt. This includes international students studying in Australia. If you don’t have a USI, you will not receive your qualification or statement of attainment.
Your USI gives you online access to a record of the training you have done, dating back to 1 January 2015. You will also be able to produce a comprehensive transcript of your training. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training. Creating a Unique Student Identifier (USI) is quick, easy and free.
