Your education number for life

Your USI (Unique Student Identifier) is your individual education number for life. It also creates an online record of your Australian training achievements.

You need a USI if you are:

  • undertaking Nationally Recognised Training  
  • a higher education student seeking Commonwealth financial assistance (eg a HECS-HELP loan)
  • a higher education student graduating in 2023 or beyond.

Follow the links below for everything you need to know about creating, finding, managing and sharing your USI.
