Unique Student Identifier (USI)

What is the USI and do I need one?

All new and continuing students require a USI (Unique Student Identifier) before registering or applying for a course with TAFE NSW.

To create your USI, simply follow the steps on the USI website. It’s quick and free to create.

The USI is a Commonwealth reference number that gives you (as a student) access to your own USI account.

Each individual account will be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection. This allows you to view all of your individual training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications in one space.

The USI allows you to find, collate and authenticate your VET achievements into a single transcript. It will also ensure that your VET records are not lost.
