What is a USI?
Your USI (Unique Student Identifier) is a special number issued by the Australian Government.
Here is some information from the Australian Government about the USI:
The Unique Student Identifier or USI is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that:
- creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, even from different training organisations
- will give you access to your training records and transcripts
- can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
- is free and easy to create and
- stays with you for life
You will have the same USI even if you go to another school.
