What are a few good vocabulary words for the topic of education?

I am calling a Persian friend tonight to practice my spoken farsi. We decided that we would talk about education.

I already know words like ostad, daneshjoo, yad migiram and daneshga but that is it. Can you give me a few more useful words that I can use in our discussion.
Kheili mamnoonam! you guys are always so helpful! :o)
