Unique Student Identifier

The USI is a reference number made up of ten numbers and letters. It’s free, easy to create and stays with you for life. 

You’ll need a USI if you are a: 

new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training 

Without one, you won’t be able to receive your statement of attainment, qualification, or award. 


For VET students, the USI gives you access to an online record of your nationally recognised training in the form of a VET transcript. This can be used when: 

applying for a job 

seeking a credit transfer 

demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training.
