If you’re studying nationally recognised training in Australia from 1 January 2015, you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results (transcript) that you have completed from 1 January 2015 onwards. Your results from 2015 will be available in your USI account in 2016.
When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). One of the main benefits of the USI is the ability to provide students with easy access to their training records and results (transcript) throughout their life.
You can access your USI account online from your computer, tablet or smart phone anytime.
How to get a USI
It’s free and easy to create your own USI and will only take a few minutes of your time. Or if you like you can learn more about the steps to create a USI.
While most students will create their own USI, some training organisations will also be able to create your USI for you, with your written permission. Your training organisation might offer this as part of your enrolment process when you begin studying. Where this service is provided your training organisation will let you know.
