What is Unique Student Identifier (USI)?
The Unique Student Identifier or USI is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that:
- creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, even from different training organisations
- will give you access to your training records and transcripts
- can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
- is free and easy to create and
- stays with you for life
You must apply for one as soon as your course starts. When you attend Orientation at Bridge, we will help you to generate your USI number.
Who needs a USI and why?
If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training and course you need a USI in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment. If you don’t have a USI you will not receive your qualification or statement of attainment.
Your USI will give you access to an online record of the training you have done since 1 January 2015. You will also be able to produce a comprehensive transcript of your training. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training.
Please visit the Australian Government Link below for more information. https://www.usi.gov.au/
I want to know about Student Holidays.
Full-time students are required to study for a minimum of 36 weeks per year. For VET students, you are therefore eligible to take two terms holidays (there is 6 weeks in a term) per year as well as a 4 week break over the Christmas/New Year Period. Please refer to our International Student Handbook or contact Student Services for more information.
What will happen if I withdraw from my course before I have finished?
Students on study visas are required by law to stay with their education provider for a period of six months of their Principal Course. Applications to change provider will be considered with reference to the following criteria:
- The new visa arrangements effective from 1 July 2016, mean colleges may be penalised by the (DOHA) for facilitating student movement between providers and students may have difficulty in renewing their visa should they not complete their original course enrolment.
- A Change of Provider request is in a student’s ‘best interest’. Bridge Business College will consider the following cases as grounds for a Change of Provider request acting in a student’s best interest:
- The student’s career aspirations and goals have changed whereby the students’ needs are significantly improved by moving to a new provider.
- A student will be reported because they are unable to achieve satisfactory course progress at the level they are studying even after engaging with ‘Counselling’ sessions with student services.
- A student has compassionate or compelling circumstances necessitating the Change of Provider. These circumstances are generally defined as those beyond the control of the student and which will have an impact upon a student’s course progress or wellbeing.
