The Harry Potter franchise continues to expand, including news of a prequel spin-off trilogy (called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) that J.K. Rowling is adapting for the big screen as we speak. To partake in perhaps the ultimate act of Potter fandom, enroll at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry — a new online/social network where would-be wizzes and witches can get an education at one of pop culture’s most famous institutes of higher learning.
Once accepted, students are able to grab virtual textbooks and dig into the nine-week course load, which zips through seven years of magic schooling. Your experience is aided by professors, homework, quizzes, and you can even join a dormitory to meet fellow Potter geeks. The site won’t cost you a dime, but students purchase books and tools with fake galleons. Open Culture shared their acceptance letter into the program, if you want to get a feel for the experience before you commit.
For a fun education without the hefty student loans, head to Hogwarts online.
