So... While I am biding my time waiting for any straggler requests to come in regarding the three mods mentioned earlier, I have been looking into homeworld university.
Good news : I have it working rather well, and I will have a new version of Careers with the ability available soonish (possibly tonight if I don't hit any big snags).
Bad news : EA in their infinite wisdom added a cleanup routine for Academic Careers while playing the homeworld, which unfortunately they placed in a rather obnoxious location.
To add protections around that code, without the use of a Core-Mod, requires some updates to the suite, along the same lines as how Dream Catching works:
All Hard-Reset mods will need updating (MasterController, ErrorTrap)
All mods that involve switching households will need updating (Selector, PortraitPanel, StoryProgression, Mover)
A change to the "Age Up" interaction will be needed (Overwatch)
What this means is that if you want to play using a homeworld university, you will need to install a couple mods from the suite to ensure the academic career is not stripped off your sims.
This issue may also explain the disappearance of the career in normal gameplay as well, a side-effect of accidentally switching household, or being reset, while Traveler is installed.
That problem should also be resolved once the appropriate mods have been updated.
You can play without the additional mods, as long as you don't allow an active sim to age-up, switch households, or have a catastrophic hard-reset (yes, this one may be tough to intentionally avoid).
