There are no pre-requisite quests to unlock Professor Sharp’s first Assignment in Hogwarts Legacy. As soon as you meet the Professor for the first time, you will be able to take on the Assignment. But to unlock Depulso, you need to get three potions: Focus, Maxima, and Edurus.

You need to consume the Focus potion to complete the first part of the Assignment. Then, you need to consume the Edurus and Maimuma potions at the same time to fulfil the second part of the Assignment. Once you are done, you need to talk to Professor Sharp, and you will unlock the Depulso spell.

You can pick up recipes for the Maxima and Focus Potions from J. Pippin’s shop in Hogsmeade. But do be warned, as the recipes can cost a ton of Galleons.
