This mod adds a new custom "career" to the game: the Magic Academy.
The Magic Academy is an ancient institution that educates students on the study of sorcery and witchcraft. It is themed as a university-level institution for young adults and older.

Are you interested in the world beyond what we can't merely see? Have you been born with supernatural powers, but don't know how to wield them? The Magical Academy is the perfect place to enroll and hone your magical skills. Students go through five years of rigorous study and training in all magical arts, before they are offered the choice of a career in continued magical teaching or in Magical Law Enforcement. Non-Witch Sims are allowed to join, but as basic magical ability is expected of all students, don't expect to get past first year. Join the Magical Academy and help to shape the Supernatural World!

Note that your Sim does not have to be of the Witch Occult life state to join this career, but since the career requires building your Sim's Spellcasting skill they would find it exceedingly difficult to progress (imagine being a muggle attending Hogwarts!)

Also something to keep in mind is that Sims in this career will not be paid a salary for the first five levels of the "Education" branch of this career. This is by design, as (just like real-life universities) education isn't free. Your sims will need to find a way to financially support themselves if they stay in the Education branch, until they reach a paid level of the career.

Rabbithole: The Magic Academy career is situated in the School rabbithole, regardless of which branch you choose.

Work Tones:
  • Business as Usual
  • Study hard in the library (Work Hard)
  • Relax in the Common Room (Take It Easy)
  • Meet Fellow Mages in the Great Hall
  • Chat with Fellow Mages in the Common Room
  • Practise in the Alchemy Laboratory (Increases Alchemy skill)
  • Practise flying in the Broomstick Arena (Increases Broomstick Riding skill)





This career branches once, and can then branch again depending on which path you first chose. Because The Sims 3 careers only have one branch by default, adding a second branch was possible, however it was difficult to word the branch choice since The Sims 3 careers are only meant to have one branch option. Therefore the branch option for this career will list the same options each time, however depending on which career path you are currently on it will lead to a different result.

This career has its own uniforms and an array of different opportunities, from class tests to duelling tournaments to dark rituals, depending on which career path you chose. Students will bring home magical textbooks from class every day, which should be read to keep their career performance high.
