Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Encounter the aspiring wizard.
  2. Help him perfect his spell technique.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When entering any of the major cities, you may come across a wizard who claims to want to join the College of Winterhold. He will then ask that you teach him a few spells, usually ward spells. He will cast his spell and then ask you to cast yours, after which he will thank you and reward you with a small number of scrolls.


  • If you have a follower, tell them to wait a short distance away. If you don't, they will attack the wizard when he attacks you.


  • Loading through doors (into your house for example) will result in the Student disappearing from the city when you go back outside. A quest marker will be present, but is not visible on the map, leaving no way to finish or remove the quest from the log.
