Universal spells were spells not associated with any school, though they were sometimes collectively called the school of universal magic. Only a small number of spells fit this description, including permanency, prestidigitation, and wish. They could be learned by all wizards, no matter their specialization.[1][2]

Universal province[]

Universal spells were distinct from the much larger number of spells belonging to the universal province in the Zakharan system of dividing spells into elemental provinces[3] rather than the eight commonly recognized schools.[1]
