To unlock the "Academic" trophy in "The Bridge" you must complete all 6 puzzles in Chapter II. To reach the Chapter II door you will need to rotate the House to get the Professor to the second floor.

This chapter introduces Vortexes. Anything sucked into a Vortex is stuck there unless there is a timer or a switch that turns the Vortex off.

Chapter II-I: The Vortex

Walk the Professor right as much as possible. Pull LT very slightly so that the key falls into the alcove to its left, and be ready to pull RT as soon as possible to stop the Professor falling into the Vortex. Now rotate strongly with RT to get the key to the Professor and exit.

Chapter II-II: The Precipice

This can and should be completed without using LT or RT or the DualShock tilt controls (I recommend switching those off in the game menu). To get the key and get back to the door without rotating the level, you need to use the force of the Vortex's closing animation to launch you to the right of it to get the key, and then back to the left of it for the door. The Vortex opens and then makes five tiny pulses before closing when you first approach it. You need to stand nearby and walk into the Vortex just as the fifth pulse is starting to fling you out the other side to the key. On the way back, the Vortex will only pulse four times before closing so you need to walk into it just as the fourth pulse is starting to again fling you back to the door at the start of the level. It may take a few tries, make sure to rewind to perfect it if you need to. If you do not use any rotation you will also unlock:

Chapter II-III: The Lion

Walk right and step on the button and despawn the Vortex. Slowly rotate with LT to get the Menace clear of where the Vortex will respawn. Keep rotating with LT and the Professor will fall off the button and into the Vortex. Keep rotating, the Menace will eventually hit the button and free the Professor so he can reach the door.

Chapter II-IV: The Pillars

Rotate with RT so that the key falls to the platform right of the Vortex, then shift it a little with LT so that the key is in the Vortex. Rotate with RT until the Professor can reach the button. Now the key can fall along the same path that the Professor just took. Grab the key and walk left/LT until you reach the door.

Chapter II-V: The Mausoleum

Walk right onto the button. Then rotate the level to work the Menace through the short maze and into the circular area in the bottom. You need the Menace to be in the outer ring, NOT in the Vortex, so slow down and tweak its trajectory once it falls towards the circular section. Now you need to move the Professor through the same maze and get him in the Vortex -- take things slow so that the Menace doesn't build up so much momentum that it comes out of the outer ring. Once the Professor is in the Vortex, move the Menace back up to the button to release the Professor and exit the door.

Chapter II-VI: The Memorial

Rotate with RT until the Menace drops onto the button. The Professor will drop onto a ledge as well. Now walk the Professor over to the right-hand corner where the Menace was originally. Tweak with RT so that the Menace falls and then immediately hit LT to send it into the Vortex without touching the Professor. Next you need to rotate RT until the Professor is on the wall to the left of the button, and the key on a chain is dangling towards the Menace's starting position. You now need to rotate back with LT slowly so that the key ends up resting on the same platform as the Professor rather than dangling off the edge of the level. Go and grab it with the Professor then head back to the button to release the Menace. Rotate slightly with RT while the Professor is on the button to put the Menace back where it started. Walk carefully off the edge and make a very small movement with LT if needed to get the Professor in the Vortex without getting hit by the Menace or the Menace being sucked in as well. Now rotate all the way around with RT again to get the Menace on the button and walk the Professor out of the level.

Once you have completed all of the puzzles in this chapter the trophy will unlock. Here's a video by ArsenalRobert, full credit to him for the video.
