One year of free tertiary study

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:15 pm on 5 December 2017

Anyone who finished school this year, or will finish next year will be eligible for a year's free tertiary study or industry training.

The new 'free-fees' policy will also apply to people who aren't school leavers but have completed less than half a fulltime year of study.

The details have been released today as part of the Government's one year free tertiary plan which it pledged to have in place within in its first 100 days.

We speak with Education Minister Chris Hipkins.
