Unique Student Identifier (USI) for VET

10 November 2014

The Unique Student Identifier—due to be formally implemented in January 2015—will make it easier for students to find, collate and authenticate their VET achievements into a single transcript. It will also ensure that students’ VET records are not lost.

There will be significant benefits for training providers resulting from the introduction of the USI. For example, the USI initiative will enable students to provide training providers with access to an online authenticated record of student attainment. This will assist with the recording of enrolment details and will help to streamline the assessment of course prerequisites, credit transfer and the assessment of eligibility for funding assistance.

Training organisations and students can now access the USI Registry System to create USIs.
