Etymologically derived from "study", a student is one who studies.

Also known as a disciple[?] in the sense of a religious area of study, and/or in the sense of a "discipline" of learning.

Many students at modern times are required to attend school by their families, so they feel no sense of enjoyment. Some of them immediately quit their studies when the families no longer require them. Others, as adults, may become students later in their life, either for interests, or for advancement in career.
