    Hello,

    Do I get an Education discount if I have started GCSE Coursework for School?

    If not, if my mum bought it for me would she get a discount as she is a headteacher of a Lower School?

    (UK)

    Thanks
    Tom :confused:

    No it's only for further (college) or higher (university) education.

    Nothing about Higher Education there... :confused:

    And you don't have to ring up to buy it for Education in the UK... So in theory I could get my mum to buy it as a teacher?

    Not my fault im Addicted to them, Anyway I use this name on other forum too :p Hehe

    I'd just get your mum to fill those details in on the site, when I order from the edu store they never check to make sure or ring me up etc, your mum sounds eligible anyways.

    Nope, not true.

    In Bristol, for example, the City Academy is included. There're quite a few 6th form colleges in Wales that count, as do some UK HE colleges where you don't need to be 18 to study. Plus there other kinds of HE institutions that offer vocational, rather than academic, qualifications (e.g. drama).

    The HE Store tends to cater for university student and staff, but it does not do so exclusively.

    That's a shame - as I say, it does tend to be universities that benefit, but it's always worth a check esp as most people (reasonably) assume it's just for those institutions.
