Education is available from either the sidebar or the West Side of the City and is extremely beneficial as it can enhance nearly every aspect of your game.
To enrol in an Education course you need to have the required amount of money, which varies for each course. Some Education courses require you to complete a certain prerequisite course before enrolling .</font>
Disadvantages of Education
Starting every course requires some amount of money, although this can be countered by getting the Stock Benefit from ISTC.
While in Education, you might be kicked out of your course for drug usage. This means that you have wasted your money and time, and must restart the course from the very beginning.
At this time, the only way to cancel your current Education course is to use the drawback above and constantly take drugs until you are kicked out.
