USI – Unique Student Identifier

What is a USI?

A USI is a Unique Student Indentifier number.

The Australian Government now requires all students studying a nationally recognised qualification to get a 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. By having a USI you will be able to access your training records and results (or transcript) whenever you need them. For example, for a new employer or when you enrol to study at a training organisation. For detailed information on the USI please visit the Australian Government’s Department of Industry website at
