The Carthaki University is located in Thak City, the capital of Carthak.

HistoryEdit

It is one of the oldest and most prestigious centers of learning in the world, and is where the emperors of Carthak have received their education for generations.

AccreditationEdit

The Carthaki University has a ranking system for its magical students who have the Gift. The black robe is the highest rank a graduate can receive. An orange robe was the second highest in the 3rd century HE[1], but this seems to have been changed to red by the 5th century – all masters mentioned in the 5th century have red robes while orange robes are not mentioned.

Graduates must adhere to the magical laws set about by the university. Inar Hadensra, a powerful Scanran mage in the 5th century HE, didn't want a black robe as he knew the university would try to limit his magic and prowess[2].

School for MagesEdit

StructureEdit

The School for Mages has a Lower Academy and an Upper Academy. The Lower Academy teaches magic to younger students, starting around ten years of age until about fifteen.[3] The Upper Academy takes students at sixteen until they receive accreditation.

InstructorsEdit

All magic instructors hold the honorific "Master", whether male or female.

LessonsEdit

Students learn a variety of subjects, all centered on the Gift. Although wild magic is a noted form of magic, the university knows it cannot teach it, because one is either born with it or not. They know of it due to their proximity to the Banjiku, a tribe where wild magic manifests more often than not. Advanced students may have one-on-one courses with a master rather than traditional classroom lessons; often these one-on-one courses cover more specific or archaic subjects.[4]
