* In ''Literature/MotherOfLearning'', the protagonist and many other characters attend the Cyorian Magical Academy. Feels like a Harry Potter-style boarding school, but seems more focused on practical things.

* Kamar Taj in ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' is a temple HiddenInPlainSight in Kathmandu, Nepal where the Ancient One and the Masters of the Mystic Arts live. There, ordinary men and women whom the Ancient One considers worthy are taught to draw energy from other dimensions into the form of magic, learning SupernaturalMartialArts and various other forms of sorcery. Students are allowed the option to leave with what they learned if they want (as was the case with Jonathan Pangborn) or stay and defend Earth's dimension from anything that seeks to threaten it. Kamar Taj is one of the rare examples of the trope that is a [[BackToSchool school for adults]].

* "Literature/WarlocksoftheSigil": Has magical schools where children who display aptitude for magic go. The one the main character Quinn attends is a BoardingSchool. They attend until they hit puberty and get apprenticed or turn 18 whichever happens first.

* In the ''Literature/CraftSequence'', the mage-lawyers on whom the modern world depends are trained by the Hidden Schools, so called due to their origin as places of refuge for scholars of magic fleeing the wrath of jealous gods.

* In Raymond E. Feist's ''Literature/TheRiftwarCycle'', begun in 1982, the magician Pug sets up an academy on the island of Stardock to streamline the teaching of magic as well as teaching a new form of magic that he learned on [[AnotherDimension Kelewan]].

Essentially, Pug spearheads the transition from apprenticeships to large-scale schooling for magic, at least on his world.

** Well, they have the Colleges for a reason. Originally in the Empire, "hedge wizards" were the only magic practitioners and they basically created homebrew spells through experimentation and chance. These hedge wizards could use far more spells than modern College wizards but they'd often get corrupted with dark magic or just blow themselves up by fumbling the spells. Either way, you probably wanted to stand well back whenever they tried to cast something. College wizards are less versatile, but a ''lot'' safer to be around.

Thus was born the WizardingSchool, the institute for education in magic. There the young sorcerers go to learn various forms of [[MagicAIsMagicA rule-based]] FunctionalMagic (after all, there's not much one can ''learn'' if the magic is [[WildMagic random and uncontrollable)]], divided into different "subjects" or even schools of magic. An exceptional talent may be a prerequisite for entrance, in which case the school is a center for TrainingTheGiftOfMagic. Expect plenty of MagiBabble on the tests.

** The Arcane University in Cyrodiil's Imperial City was another notable example. It served as the headquarters of the Mages Guild until the Guild's collapse in the early 4th Era. The university grounds were guarded by [[MagicKnight Imperial Battlemages]] of the [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous Shadow Legion]], a magic-using legion who were once trained in the Battlespire. In the center of the district is the [[TheArchMage Arch-Mage]]'s Tower. The tower contained the Council Chamber, the Arch-Mage's living quarters, and a ground floor open to the public. The chambers were linked by magical teleportation pads. Accessible from the tower was the Imperial Orrery, a reconstructed [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] machine used to chart the heavens. The university contained a Chironasium for enchanting, a Lustratorium for alchemy, a Praxographical Center for spell making, and quarters and practice rooms for permanent residents. The Mystic Archives had a large collection of books and notes. The grounds also contained an [[AlchemyIsMagic alchemical]] garden, an outdoors lecture area, and an Imperial watchtower for the Battlemages. The University itself can be visited in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' Mages Guild quest line.

** The Imperial Battlespire was a magical training ground for the [[MagicKnight Imperial Battlemages]]. It was located in the "Slipstream", an area separating Mundus (the mortal plane) from Oblivion. During the events of the eponymous DungeonCrawl spin-off game, it is invaded by the forces of Mehrunes Dagon, [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]]. While the [[PlayerCharacter Hero of the Battlespire]] is able to repel the invasion and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu banish]] Dagon back to Oblivion, the Battlespire is destroyed.

* In the original 1939 version of T.H. White's ''The Sword in the Stone'', which later became the first part of ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' it's mentioned that Madame Mim has a double first at Dom-Daniels, a college for witches and warlocks somewhere under the sea and both black and white magic users studied there. (expect Merlyn he was privately tutored by his master Blaise).
