Could you describe the difference in contexts/connotations for "Study" and "Education" as modifiers, particularly in "study programs" and "education programs" at the university - might be my question is also about style, fell free to express your views, thanks in advance.
Study programs and education programs are virtually synonyms in this sense. They are basically the same thing.
However, most people might tend to think that study programs indicates more intense or active "studying" or maybe "group study" or possibly more self learning is involved. Whereas "education programs" would tend to give a broader sense of education, classroom learning, etc... without necessarily a particular study focus or activity associated with it.
That's really the only difference I can think of at the moment.
