Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory since 1 January 2015

Since the 1st of January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

Whether you're studying at TAFE, a private training organisation, completing a certificate or diploma course, apprenticeship or skill set - you'll need a USI.
