What is a USI? Do I need to have one?

From January 2015, the Federal Government developed a system called the USI (Unique Student Identifier), to help Australian students gain access to their results when they complete a nationally recognised course, or part thereof. The USI is generated online, does not cost anything and will be recorded whenever you enrol in a nationally recognised VET course.

To create your USI click here:

You will need to supply your USI at the time of enrolment. Please note that if you do not have a USI, we will not be able to confirm your place in the course.
