New Zealanders who have just finished school or will leave in 2018 will qualify for a year of free study next year at either a provider based tertiary education or industry training. People who aren't school leavers but have completed less than half a full time year of study also qualify.

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

Political reporter Mei Heron explains the detail released by The Education Minister Chris Hipkins.
