Make Android Tablet restricted to user

Is there a way to limit what the user can do on an android tablet? I own tablets that my students use. Is there an easy way to restrict access to do things like:

1.) Download more apps through Google Play
2.) Log into another google account.
3.) Etc.

Any advice would be great, thanks!

Seems you're out of luck. You're already on the newest official update.
Another not so favourable option is to install cyanogen mod 10.2 or higher. But this requires rooting, which means voiding your warranty.

Since Android 4.3 this is possible. A restricted profile starts out with everything locked down.  A user has only a few, including the play store, but using the play store will result in a message about being restricted. You can open a few apps for this user after this.

Thanks Kimputer... my tablet is currently 4.1.2... is there a way to upgrade it to 4.3? It is a Samsung purchased a year ago.
