What is your USI number?

A USI - Unique Student Identifier is a reference number that creates an online record of your training and qualifications attained in Australia. If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training, you need a USI in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment.

From 1st of January 2021, all new students applying for Commonwealth Financial Assistance (VSL, HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP, OS-HELP, SA-HELP) will need to provide their USI on their Commonwealth Assistance Form (CAF or eCAF) prior to census date. This also includes all on-shore international students.

To create a new USI or find your existing USI please visit

If you would like SAE to apply for a USI on your behalf you must authorise us to do so. By authorising us to apply for a USI on your behalf, you consent to us using and disclosing the personal information provided at enrolment for that purpose.

In accordance with section 11 of the Student Identifiers Act 2014, SAE will securely destroy personal information which we collect from individuals solely for the purpose of applying for a USI on their behalf as soon as practicable after we have made the application or the information is no longer needed for that purpose.

I have not applied for a USI yet and hereby authorise SAE to apply for a USI on my behalf, pursuant to sub-section 9(20) of the Student Identifiers Act 204.
Financial Declaration
The Australian Department of Home Affairs (DoHA) requires all international students to have access to sufficient funds to pay their tuition fees, travel costs and living expenses for the first 12 months in Australia. More information about financial capacity requirements can be found on the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.

  • The amounts listed in the table above are the minimum required for a student, and do not necessarily represent the entire cost of studying and living in Australia.
  • The course fees for 12 months indicated above are approximate, based on 2022 SAE Fee Schedule for a normal duration, full-time study plan. SAE fees are updated annually and are available on the SAE website.
  • A detailed breakdown of actual fees will be provided on my course offer, and may differ from the above guide.
  • Fast Track courses of shorter duration will result in a higher annual cost.
  • Variations to my study plan, such as course credits and RPL will reduce the overall cost of my course.
  • If I have any school-aged children or dependents accompanying me to Australia, they must attend school and I will be required to pay a full fee for their enrolment.
  • I may be required to present evidence of financial capacity to SAE or the Department of Home Affairs
