    Yes, but you have to do it over the phone. It used to be that you could just use the Further Education discount (for colleges, 16-18 y/o) but now you have to access the site through the institute's network, just like you do for the Higher Education (university) website.

    This is the generic HE discount store that you can access from any network, home or institution: http://store.apple.com/uk_edu_77779.

    Just note that your education discount will be a bit smaller (HE is 12%, FE is 10%, regular is 8% I think).

    Hi, I'm 14 and I bought my iMac with educational discount. I don't think that your meant to though, I think it is just for people in university, but hey, whenever you get a chance to save a bit of cash, I say go for it!
