Job-ready Graduates Package
The Job-ready Graduate Package are higher education reforms that change funding arrangements and student protections. The Package delivers revised arrangements which includes investing in areas of national priority, improved accountability and transparency through integrated systems and support processes, as well as more opportunities and funding support for regional, rural and Indigenous students.
There are also a number of student protection requirements under the Package, which have been incorporated into supporting our students success. We support you through your journey, monitor every student’s progress and engage with students throughout their studies to ensure satisfactory progress towards completing a degree and preventing incurring unnecessary debt.
Unique Student Identifier
A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is your individual education number that you will have for life.
From 1 January 2023, all higher education students, including those who commenced prior to 2021, must have a USI in order to graduate and receive their testamur. This includes onshore international and Higher Degree by Research students.
All new domestic students, and those transferring to a new course, must have a USI to be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) and to receive Commonwealth financial assistance, through the HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP, OS-HELP and SA-HELP schemes.
Commencing students will need to submit their USI when they accept their offer to study at Flinders.
