Tip #8 - RRSP uses

RRSPs can be used for more than just retirement. They can also be used for:

Education.You can withdraw up to $10,000 a year from your RRSP, without immediate taxation, to a maximum of $20,000 over a four-year period to fund your education in a qualified education program. You must repay your RRSP within 10 years.

Has anyone done this? i am curious to know if you think this was a good way to use some of that RRSP that you had been saving? also wondering if others know what are qualified "education programmes"
