Wouldn't think so, and, Au should be treated the same as the US colleges?

Buy a Mac, get an iPod Touch for free (sfgate.com/blogs/tech) June 4, 2008

(US) Apple is giving away an iPod Touch to college students purchasing a 
Mac in back-to-school shopping.

The Cupertino technology company typically has offered freebies each year 
to entice students to buy a Mac - and it's worked. Mac sales have been way 
up, according to Apple's latest financial report. 

In the past, Apple gave away an iPod Nano, which students can still opt to 
get with the $299 rebate. But Apple has been shifting its attention this 
year to the iPod Touch, which it sees as not just an MP3 player, but a 
mobile computing device - and perhaps a gateway product to the iPhone. 

Incidentally, the promotion, which ends Sept. 15, comes one week before 
Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, when Apple Chief Executive 
Officer Steve Jobs is rumored to be announcing the latest generation of 
the iPhone.
