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 enroll 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.
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.

How to shorten Education time
Currently, there are six ways to shorten Education time:
- Through the 1* Fitness Center special "Healthy Mind". Each job point used will reduce education time by 30 minutes.
- Through the 7* Hair Salon special "Cutting corners". Each job point used will reduce education time by 30 minutes.
- Using "Book of Carols" lowers current education time by 6 hours. This item spawns in Christmas Town.
- Spending Merits on decreasing education time. The merit upgrade removes 2% of the education time per upgrade, up to a maximum of 20% shorter education time with 10 upgrades.
- Promoting to the top rank of the starter job Education (Principal) you will gain a passive 10% decrease in education time. You will keep this passive even if you leave the starter job.
- Having a West Side University (WSU) Stock Block of 1,000,000 shares will reduce education time by 10%.
Using job points in Fitness Center or Hair Salon will reduce your current education time by 30 minutes per. Book of Carols will reduce your current education time by 6 hours. Promoting to Principal, investing Merits in 'Education Length', or acquiring the WSSB benefit block will reduce the length of any subsequent courses — having no effect on a course that has already been started.
Note: Percentage reductions to education time are calculated separately (I.e full education merits, WSSB, and principal perk would not be a 40% reduction, but would work out to be 35%.) If you would like to calculate how long your education will last you can use the following formula:
x = 0.10 from WSSB
y = 0.20 from merits
z = 0.10 from job
l = Education length
