Unique Student Identifier (USI) for VET students
The Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a Council of Australian Governments (COAG) initiative. From 1 January 2014 every new and existing VET student must have a USI. The USI is a number that a student retains throughout their lifetime. The USI will act as a key, giving students a single point of access to their VET records.
