What is a USI?

The USI is a reference number made up of ten numbers and letters that:

  • Creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, from all training providers you undertake recognised training with
  • Will give you access to your training records and transcripts
  • Can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
  • Is free and easy to create and
  • Stays with you for life

Who needs a USI and why?

If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training, you need a USI in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment. If you don’t have a USI you will not receive your qualification or statement of attainment.

Your USI will give you access to an online record of the training you have done since 1 January 2015. You will also be able to produce a comprehensive transcript of your training. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training.

If you are an International student who will be studying in Australia you will require a USI.
The USI is at no cost to the student. Please click here to get your USI number please click here to learn how to create a USI.
