For study at universities, Te Pūkenga, wānanga and private training establishments (PTEs), Fees Free covers tuition fees, compulsory course costs and compulsory student services fees.

For industry training, Fees Free covers all fees for training and assessment for the first 24 months of any eligible industry training programme. Learners can also access eligible programmes in targeted areas for free under the Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF).
