Distinguished degrees, and whether your Sim can have one will depend on what university they attend as each offers them in different subjects.

  • Biology
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Villainy

On the other side of the world, the University of Britechester offers distinguished degrees for:

  • Art History
  • Communications
  • Culinary Arts
  • Drama
  • Fine Art
  • History
  • Language and Literature

The Sims 4 Discover University skill cheats

Discover University introduced two new skills to the game, robotics and research and debate skills.

To cheat these to their max levels, you'll need the following codes:

Skill Cheat
Research and Debate stats.set_skill_level Major_ResearchDebate X
Robotics stats.set_skill_level Major_Robotics X

All you'll need to change about these codes when entering them in-game is to replace the 'X' with the number of the level you wish your Sim to reach. For example, you could do 'stats.set_skill_level Major_ResearchDebate 3' if you just want to give them a little headstart in the skill.

Career cheats for Discover University

Five new careers arrived in Discover University, with some being perfect for your post grads, and others being more suited to Sims during their studying days. You can promote your Sims that have been assigned these careers in a jiffy with the following codes:




careers.promote careers_Adult_Education


careers.promote careers_Adult_Engineering


careers.promote careers_Adult_Law

E-Sports Volunteer

careers.promote careers_Volunteer_E-Sports

Soccer Team Volunteer

careers.promote careers_Volunteer_SoccerTeam

If you want your Sim to go down a career level, simply replace the word 'promote' to 'demote' in the cheat, and they'll fall one rank down in the ladder.
