Learning: the acquiring of knowledge or skill; improve ability; increase awareness.
Study: to apply the mind in order to acquire knowledge or skill.
Education:the process of training and developing the knowledge, skill, mind, character, etc., esp. by formal schooling; teaching; training. [15th century. < Latin educat-, past participle of educare “bring up, rear,” related to educere “lead out” < ducere“lead”]

Technically: Education is the conveyance of ideas, patterns & creations from one person to another for knowing retention & conscious use by the second person. Learning, knowing or accomplishing the knowingness of a certain subject, and would be in the direction of accomplishing certain actions professionally. It’s the activity of relaying an idea or an action from one being to another, in such a way as not to stultify or inhibit the use thereof and that’s about all it is.  You could add to it that it permits, then, the other fellow to think on this subject and develop. The process by which the individual is given the accumulated data of a long span of culture.  It can, no less validly than personal experience, solve many of his problems.
Studentship [skill, art, craft]: the state of being a student. [15th century. Alteration of Old Frenchestudiant< Latin student-, present participle of studere “be diligent”]

Technical Student; one who studies.  He is an attentive
& systematic observer.  A student is one who reads in detail in
order to learn & then apply.  As a student studies he knows that his
purpose is to understand the materials he is studying by reading,
observing, & demonstrating so as to apply them to a specific result.
He connects what he is studying to what he will be doing.
[study derivation: 15th century. Alteration of Old Frenchestudiant< Latin student-, present participle of studere “be diligent”]


acharyat padamadatte padam shishyah svamedhaya.
padam sabrahmacharibhyah padam kalakramena cha.

Of all the learning that a person gets, only a quarter of it comes from the teacher; a quarter comes from his own intelligence; another quarter he acquires from his contemporary students and the last quarter only in due course of time through experience. – (an ancient Sanskrit saying)
