Financial Markets Institute of Australia

The next step is to provide us with your USI.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Financial Markets Institute of Australia can be prevented from issuing you with a nationally recognised VET qualification or statement of attainment when you complete your course if you do not have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). In addition, we are required to include your USI in the data we submit to NCVER. If you have not yet obtained a USI you can apply for it directly at https://www.usi.gov.au/your-usi/create-usi on computer or mobile device.

For more details, please refer to “Unique Student Identifier (USI)” www.usi.gov.au

  1. Please email your Unique Student Identifier (if you already have one) to admin@fmi.edu.au
  2. If you don’t have a USI number, you can apply for one by going to the USI website: usi.gov.au and follow the steps here: https://www.usi.gov.au/your-usi/create-usi

You may already have a USI. If so you cannot create a new one. You should not have more than one USI. To check if you already have a USI, use the ‘Forgotten USI’ link on the USI website at https://www.usi.gov.au/faqs/find-your-usi

If you have an objection to being assigned a Unique Student Identification Number (USI), you are able to apply for an exemption, directly to the Student Identifiers Registrar at www.usi.gov.au. Where the USI exemption applies, the results of the training will not be accessible through the Commonwealth and will not appear on any authenticated VET transcript.
