For Australians living in Canada only

If you’re an Australian living in Canada and wishing to enrol, you’ll need a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a unique reference number that Australian Government is extending to all higher education domestic and onshore international students, starting in 2021.
If you have undertaken any vocational education or training (even a First Aid course) since 2015 you probably already have a USI.

To find out if you already have a USI, click here: Find your USI
To create a USI, click here: Create USI

Why do I need a USI?

The Australian Government has advised that all domestic and onshore international students require a USI to study and graduate from an Australian higher education provider. It is also required for students to be able to access Commonwealth Assistance in all forms.

The USI will replace the current Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN). If you do not provide, or AIB cannot verify your USI with the Australian Government, you may not be able to graduate or receive any form of Commonwealth Assistance. This means you will be charged the fee-paying rate, with no access to HELP loans, or you may lose your place in your program.

By 1 January 2023 all students must have a USI to receive their higher education award, unless an exemption applies.
For details about the USI process and/or privacy policies, please see the USI help page and the USI privacy page.
