Unlock Master Classes in Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Master Class is the highest level of evolution for your units as they learn new skills and increase their stats to the maximum.

In order to unlock this class, first make sure that your individual units are ranked at Level 30 or above. Now, increase your Professor Level to Grade C or above which you can do by completion of Monastery-related tasks.

This will unlock the Master Certification prompting you to purchase a Master Seal for 3,000 Gold at Anna’s Shop.

After acquiring the Master Seal, you can prepare your character for the Certification Exam whenever you have a day off. Select this option from the “Certifications” tab in the in-game menu.
