Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that creates a secure online record of an individual’s recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia. A USI is required for all new or continuing domestic and international students undertaking nationally recognised Vocational education and training in Australia. Students are required to have a USI in order to receive a qualification or statement of attainment, or to access funding or loans. International students who are not studying in Australia do not need a USI.

Apply for a USI.  You will need a valid form of ID (eg. Driver’s licence, passport, etc.).
