TS4 x64 2019 11 13 06 32 21

The Sims 4 Discover University comes with one new Knowledge aspiration: Academic. The Academic aspiration is focused on getting a higher education at university and will encourage your Sims to get good grades in university and do various university-related activities.

The aspiration is a good way for players to familiarize themselves with some of the new gameplay features of Discover University, but Sims do not need to have this aspiration to attend university or to explore any of the new features of Discover University.

Completing the Academic aspiration will grant your Sim the Higher Education trait.
