Unique Student Identifier

Unique Student Identifier

All participants in qualification courses are required by The Australian Government, Department of Industry to obtain a compulsory Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI account will contain all your nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards. 


All students must have a USI before any Registered Training Organisation (RTO) such as Think Real Estate can issue a Statement of Attainment or Qualification Certificate upon the successful completion of training.


Creating a USI takes minutes,  go to the Unique Student Identifier website and follow the steps. You may also wish to watch the video below for further information.




Protection of students privacy

Your Unique Student Identifier (USI) contains personal information, contact details and your training records and results (transcript). The USI system has been designed to keep this information safe and secure and is only accessed by those organisations listed in the terms and conditions.

The USI system also allows you to choose which training organisations and employers can see this information and when.


Your privacy and the USI

The personal information that you provide to the Student Identifiers Registrar is collected, used, and may be disclosed, in accordance with the provisions of the Student Identifiers Act 2014 and the Privacy Act 1988.  The Student Identifiers Registrar’s Privacy Policy provides information about the protection of your information, including how you can access and seek correction of your personal information held by the Student Identifiers Registrar and how to make a complaint about a breach of your privacy and how such complaints are handled.
