Unique Student Identifier (USI)
Students studying in Australia need to have a Unique Student Identifier number or USI. From 1 January 2023, all higher education students, including international students studying in Australia, must have a USI to graduate and receive their award. Your USI is your individual Australian education identification number for life. You need a USI if you are:
an International student who is onshore in Australia and has a valid visa
a new or continuing domestic student
a student who has completed their studies and will graduate in 2023 (and beyond)
The process of applying is simple, the online tutorial video which is available here overviews the process. For further information about USI's please click here. Please apply for your USI using the link below.
Tip for students who have a single name: when you apply for your USI, insert a dash (-) in the first name field and enter your name in the last name field.
Once you have received your USI, you need to record the number in your Student Portal.
Academic Integrity Module (AIM)
The Academic Integrity Module (AIM) provides students with information about their academic integrity responsibilities, the importance of proper acknowledgement and referencing, and how to avoid plagiarism and other types of academic misconduct. To successfully complete the module, students must complete the AIM quiz and achieve a score of 100%. Students may repeat the AIM and quiz as many times as needed until successfully completed.
All commencing students will be introduced to the AIM during Orientation. Students who enrol into BUS1001 and PRJ5001 will complete the AIM in the unit, students who are not enrolled into these units need to undertake the AIM independently. The AIM is accessible from the Dashboard of your Canvas account (APIC’s Online Learning System).
