Unique Student Identifier

What is a Unique Student Identifier?

A Unique Student Identifier or USI

  • Is made up of 10 numbers and letters
  • Gives you access to an account that contains your completed training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards
  • Will help you provide evidence of your studies when you apply for a job or undertake further study.

If you are a student studying nationally-recognised training at a registered training organisation like TAFE NSW, you will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) from 1 January 2015. The USI will give you ongoing access to your records and results, so they are always available if you choose to enrol in further training or need to show a future employer.

When you register for the USI, you also need to give permission for your TAFE NSW Institute to view your USI and access your records. Results from 2015 will be available in your USI account in 2016.
