What is a USI?
A USI - Unique Student Identifier is a reference number that creates an online record of your training and qualifications attained in Australia. The USI is a reference number made up of ten numbers and letters that is free and easy to create and stays with you for life.
If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training, you need a USI in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment.
A USI is for life, you only have to create it once.
How do I get my USI?
A USI is for life! You only have to create it once. If you have undertaken training since 2015, you probably have a USI.

Why do I need a USI?
If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training, you will need a USI in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment. This includes nationally recognised training delivered by secondary schools.
The USI will give you access to an online record of your nationally recognised training in the form of a USI Transcript. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training.
How do I check if I already have a USI?
If you have undertaken training since 2015 you should already have a USI. Your USI stays with you for your lifetime.
