Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Information for all students

Every student who undertakes nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) in Australia will be able to access their enrolment and achievement record from a single authoritative source.

Commencement of the USI

Under the new initiative, students will be able to get a full transcript of the entire accredited VET training they have undertaken since 1 January 2015, or an extract of it that shows the particular achievements they want it to.

Anyone undertaking nationally recognised training from 1 January 2015 will need a USI. Continuing students can apply from 16 October 2014.

Already have a USI

The USI must be provided to their Southern Cross Education Institute before the person can receive a Statement of Attainment or Qualification Certificate from 1 January 2015.
