Unique Student Identifier – USI

It's time to get your USI

USI or ‘unique student identifier’ is an Australian Government initiative that identifies all of your nationally accredited course qualifications with a single number. Before you commence study in a nationally accredited course with iTFE, you must register for your own USI. 

Getting a USI takes a few minutes. You can pick up your USI by visiting www.usi.gov.au
