Muggles, watch out! Today we want to tell you about a unique opportunity dedicated to all hard-core Harry Potter fans out there.
During this quarantine, the Hogwarts is Here site is offering online courses for all budding witches and wizards, so you can learn the basics of subjects such as Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy and Transformation, and maybe even prepare your Polyjuice Potion — all from the comfort of your couch!
Although April Fool's Day has already passed, this is definitely not a joke. After you've enrolled in the world's most famous magic school, you will next find yourself choosing one of the famous houses: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin. Unlike in the books and films, however, it is not the Sorting Hat that decides, but you! Once you have made your choice, you can meet your classmates in the common rooms online, and collect points for the chosen house by completing homework from the different courses.
The school routine at Hogwarts is very simple and similar to one of the "Muggle" world, in that it is possible to pass your classes without great having to do a lot of work... However, if you do decide to take the wizarding career seriously, you will have to read the texts, write essays and take the exams that are scored by professors from "Exceptional" to "Troll".
In addition to providing this incredible experience for true followers, what we also like about Hogwarts is Here, is that the platform is not part of the official franchise, but rather a project started for free by the Harry Potter fan club. The specially created "library" is also full of content created by the fans for other fans.
You will not need an account if you only want to consult the library or browse the site, but you must register to enter one of the four houses and to take advantage of the role-playing games or Quidditch.
Leave your Muggle existence for a moment, and enter the magical world of Harry, Ron and Hermione. We are waiting for you in the virtual common room of Gryffindor!
