As a student studying in Australia, you will need to obtain a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI is a unique reference number that is assigned to you and is used to track your training and qualifications across all Australian providers.
We understand that obtaining a USI can be confusing, which is why we have put together this guide to help you understand what a USI is and how to obtain one.
What is a USI?
A USI is a unique reference number that is assigned to you and is used to track your training and qualifications across all Australian providers. It is a requirement for all students studying nationally recognised training in Australia.
Your USI will be linked to your National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection record, which contains information about your VET training in Australia. This information can be accessed by you and your registered training organisations.
How to obtain a USI?
Obtaining a USI is free and can be done online through the USI website. To obtain a USI, you will need to provide personal identification information, such as your full name, date of birth and proof of identity.
Once you have obtained a USI, it is important to provide it to AIA, as well as any other registered training organisations you may be studying with. This will ensure that your training and qualifications can be accurately tracked across all providers.
It is also important to keep your USI information up to date, as changes to your personal information, such as a name change, must be updated on your USI account. If you have any questions or concerns about obtaining or updating your USI, please do not hesitate to contact us.
