Your USI (Unique Student Identifier) is your individual education number for life. It also creates an online record of your Australian training achievements.
You need a USI if you are:
- undertaking Nationally Recognised Training
- a higher education student seeking Commonwealth financial assistance (eg a HECS-HELP loan)
- a higher education student graduating in 2023 or beyond.
From 1st January 2015, we can be prevented from issuing you with a Nationally Recognised VET Qualification or statement of attainment when you complete your course if you do not have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). In addition, we are required to include your USI in the data we submit to NCVER.
