About the Unique Student Identifier (USI)
What is an Unique Student Identifier (USI)? Click here
The USI scheme has commenced since 1 Jan 2015. The USI is effectively an account or reference number made up of numbers / letters and consists of 10 alpha-numeric characters (e.g. 9SK15YH9U5). These alpha characters are always displayed in upper case but are not case sensitive when entered. It allows all individual’s training record, entered in VET data collection, to be linked. For the first time, every student (both local and international) who has undertaken nationally recognised VET courses in Australia, will be able to use USI to access enrolment and achievement record from a single online source. A USI must be provided to RTO before the person can receive a statement of attainment or qualification. You only need to apply once and use it for your life time.
