What’s the go?
The Australian Government is extending the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to higher education students.
It’s a bit like the Medicare number for education! A USI remains with you for life!
If you are a commencing student, or you intend on completing your degree at the end of 2022 and graduating in 2023 you will need a USI to receive your degree.
You are strongly encouraged to get your USI now!
What do I need to do?
Thankfully, creating a USI is free and easy!
You can do it at any time of the day that suits you…
> But we recommend you create or find your USI as soon as possible.
Check it out here > www.usi.gov.au and click on the Create a USI button.
Once created you can log-in and update your details at any time.
Create or find your USI now
If you have undertaken any vocational education training (even a First Aid course) since 2015 you are likely to have one already.
If you are simply unsure, it is easy to check via www.usi.gov.au and clicking Find Your USI
But I am an International Student?
If you intend on completing your degree at the end of 2022 and graduating in 2023 you will need a USI to receive your degree. You are strongly encouraged to get your USI now!
Your Tertiary Admissions Centre, or Higher Education Provider will ask you for your USI in the near future.
Keep your USI in a safe place, and ensure if your contact details change, you update them via the Student Login at www.usi.gov.au
