As part of efforts to provide a centralised, life-long record of your training & education, all students studying in Australia are required to have a Unique Student Identifier.
You will need a USI when you enrol or re-enrol if you are a:
A USI is simply an ID number, issued through the government website www.usi.gov.au
Your USI is like an educational fingerprint. Being able to identify learners this way allows for the development of a centralised recording system for all of your future education & training. Should you lose your copy of an education transcript, this system will allow you to recover it simply and easily. You can also use the system to print or share your qualification records when applying for jobs.
Yes. The Federal Government is asking all training organisations to ensure that their students have a USI. Once this scheme becomes enforceable, access to your course may become temporarily suspended if a USI is not provided.
Exemptions are provided for an individual where:
In addition, individuals who have a genuine personal objection to being assigned a student identifier will be able to apply for an exemption to the Student Identifiers Registrar (How To Apply)
Training organisations may be exempted by their Regulator from the need to collect and submit AVETMISS compliant data on nationally recognised training activities on the grounds that submission of such data would conflict with defence or national security legislation and/or could jeopardise the security or safety of defence, border protection, customs, national security or police personnel.
Should any of the above exemptions apply to Spencer College, students will be notified in writing prior to either the completion of enrolment or commencement of training and assessment, whichever comes first, of this exemption and that results will not be available through the USI scheme and will not be appear on any authenticated VET transcript prepared by the Student Identifiers Registrar.
Go to this page and fill out the online form: Create your USI.
You will need a form of valid ID, such as Driver’s Licence or a Passport.
