Office of the Unique Student Identifiers Registrar

The Unique Student Identifier (USI) is your lifelong education number. You need a USI if you are undertaking nationally recognised training, also known as Vocational Education Training (VET) - including while at school, a higher education student seeking financial assistance and accepting Commonwealth Supported Places, a higher education student graduating in 2023 or beyond. The USI also gives VET students access to verified VET transcripts, for nationally recognised training undertaken since 2015. The VET transcript can be shared with education or training providers, potential employers, employment agencies or licensing bodies. Visit www.usi.gov.au to create your USI now or, if you have done any nationally recognised training since 2015, you may already have a USI – find it at www.usi.gov.au/students/find-your-usi
