Secondary Education

This guide was written by: Christine, Emily, Lena, Lowri, Olivia, and Samm

Once your character has left school, they may be in need of further training. Since there are no universities or colleges in the wizarding world, for most characters this training will be happening on the job. Apprentice or training years are quite a common occurrence. As such, aurors undergo several years of training before becoming fully qualified and an aspiring potions master may spend several years as an assistant before opening their own business.

For the most part, it is up to you to create a suitable and believable background as to how your character learned their profession. Due to practical reasons, we can't offer a comprehensive list of all secondary education possible and available. However, read on to find background information regarding training for professions in the following areas: the Arts, Ministries of Magic, Law, Healing, Mediwizarding, and Veterinary Healing.

art schools Formal training is by no means required for your character to have a successful career in the arts, but if you prefer, there are many places for post-secondary wizarding arts education. All schools accept international applicants. Depending on your character's program of choice, a portfolio or audition demonstrating their capability is required for admission.

Armstrong Academy of Drama: Located underneath the A.B. Armstrong Theatre, one of New York's most prestigious wizarding stages, the Armstrong Academy takes advantage of the city's international drama scene to offer a superior magical theater arts education, both onstage and behind the curtains.

Giroux School of Magical Fine Arts: Beginning as an institute for the standardization of style and technique in moving portraiture, the Giroux School is located in the former chateau of founder Théodore Giroux and by the eighteenth century had become the most prestigious magical arts school in Europe due to its strict and rigorous standards. It has since expanded to teach the practice and theory of all forms of visual and performing arts, and maintains its reputation for excellence.

National Academy of Magical Performance and Art: Closely affiliated with the largest wizarding performance hall in St. Petersburg, the Russian National Academy is world-renowned for its musical and dance instruction in particular. It offers classes in visual and dramatic arts as well.

Parnassus Institute of the Arts: Founded in the early 1970s by a group of modern wizarding artists in Northern California, the Parnassus Institute is a highly mentorship-based experience, tailoring instruction to help each individual student explore and pursue their personal artistic ideas. The school retains close contact with its alumni to create a growing community of magical artists in North America and beyond.

Suruga Art University: The oldest of the current major wizarding art institutes, Suruga Art University on the southern coast of the Chūbu region of Japan continues to offer courses of study in traditional Japanese arts, music, and drama, but for decades now has been recognized as a center of avant-garde magical art and design.


ministry of magic training & specializations Each Ministry of Magic has an affiliated Academy of Politics, Wizarding Law and Diplomacy. These Academies are strictly available for Ministry Officials, and are free of charge. Advocates to the Wizarding World are not part of the governmental body (being a liberal profession) and therefore can't specialise in the Academies of Politics, Wizarding Law and Diplomacy that are affiliated to the Ministries of Magic. Lawyers have their separate schools.

Each Department has its own trainings and specialisations sections, and each of their classes are restricted to Officials working in that department strictly, unless they are doing a course which would involve their transferring from a Department to another. The specialisations are as follows:

Department of Magical Law Enforcement: Aurors who have completed their training and have worked for at least one year as a full-fledged Auror can advance in rank by taking an exam. The exam requires a specialisation course of one year and involves knowledge of Wizarding Criminology and Criminalistics. Unless an Auror is awarded a promotion by the Department Head or the Minister of Magic, they have to constantly take exams in order to advance in rank. There is a possibility for Aurors to take an International Magical Law Enforcement specialisation course, lasting two years, which will offer them the possibility of working in international cases. Improper Use of Magic Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn Wizarding and Muggle Ethics. The course can be taken several times throughout one's career, should they desire to refresh their knowledge. Investigation Department Officials have a training of one year, in which they take specialisation courses of Investigative Wizarding Methodology and Applicability. Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn about Muggle History and Society. Animagus Registry Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn Advanced Transfiguration and Animagi Ethics.

Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes: Obliviators, Committee on Experimental Charms, Invisibility Task Force, Ministry of Magic research committee, and Ministry of Magic exploding bonbons disposal unit officials must all complete a two-month course of Wizarding Ethics before starting to work in the offices.

Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures: Officials in any of this Department's offices can optionally take a six-month course which focuses on Wizarding Diplomacy and Magical Creatures, Goblin Negotiations, Centaur Ethics, Spirits Exorcism, and Elf Mediation, depending on their division of work. These specialisation courses are mandatory only for advancement in rank.

Department of International Magical Cooperation: All International Magical Trading Standards Body, International Magical Office of Law, Foreign Affairs and Sports Department Officials undergo a training period of one year, in which they learn International Wizarding Law and Wizarding Diplomacy.

Department of Magical Transportation: Floo Network Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn about Floo powder risks and benefits. Broom Regulatory Control Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn Advanced Herbology and take an introductory course to broom-making. Portkey Office and Apparition Test Centre Officials have to undergo a training in the form of a two-month course before starting their job, in which they learn Travel Ethics and Emergency Aid in case a traveller has a mishap and ends up failing a complete Apparition.

Department of Magical Games and Sports: In order to advance in higher ranks, Officials must undergo a six-month specialisation regarding Magical Sports and Ethics, and Negotiations in Sports, and pass an exam.

Department of Mysteries: Little is known about Unspeakable specialisations, however rumour has it they must undergo a six-month training course of Mysterious Wizarding Ethics, and Time and Prophecies Rhetoric before starting their job as a full-fledged Official. It is whispered that many have disappeared while taking the course.


law schools Advocates to the Wizarding World are witches and wizards who practice wizarding law, also known as lawyers, solicitors, barristers, or attorneys. They can work for the Ministry of Magic, the International Confederation of Wizards, at a wizarding law firm, or freelance. Overall, there are two types of wizarding law: general wizarding law and international wizarding law. These are not interchangeable and one can't specialise in both.

General wizarding law (or local wizarding law) is limited in application to a particular district within a territory. It focuses on not only the law of relations between individuals and the Ministry of Magic, but also on deals with the relations between wizards or institutions. General wizarding lawyers cannot work for the International Confederation of Wizards and mostly limit themselves to local cases, within the limits of their native country.

General wizarding law studies last for four years, followed by two years of practice at the individual's native Ministry of Magic. Then they can take their certification exam, which is organised annually by each of the five general wizarding law schools.

The prerequisites for being admitted in the general wizarding law schools are as follows: graduation with top grades from one's affiliated wizarding school, advanced knowledge of History of Magic, and excellency in verbal communication. There is an admittance exam, which focuses on two tests: a written one of History of Magic, and an oral one, focusing on one's communication skills. The curriculum is as follows:

Year 1: History of Wizarding Law, History of Magical Creatures, History of Witches and Wizards' Rights, History of Herbology, Potions, and the Magical Environment, History of Defence against the Dark Arts, General Theory of Wizarding Law + a selective foreign language course

Year 2: General Wizarding Law I, Magical Creatures Rights, Witches Rights, Wizards Rights, Environmental Magical Law, Self Defence and the Dark Arts + an optional course of History of the International Confederation of Wizards

Year 3: General Wizarding Law II, Wizarding Criminology and Criminalistics, Wizarding and Muggle Ethics, Magical Rhetoric, Investigative Wizarding Methodology and Applicability, Muggle History and Society

Year 4: Applicability of General Wizarding Law, Goblin Negotiations, Centaur Ethics, Spirits Exorcism, Elf Mediation, Portkey and Apparation Ethics, Introduction to Wizarding Diplomacy


The two years of practice take place in the Ministry of Magic Department which focuses on the wizarding law scholar's interest and specialisation.

The General Wizarding Law Schools are:

Cyprien Courtemanche High Institute of General Wizarding Law (CCLaw), located in Paris, France, for Beauxbatons graduates

Richard Rhodes Law School (RRLaw), located in Washington, D.C., United States of America, for Ilvermorny graduates

Sakurazawa Shino Academy of General Wizarding Law and High Institute of Japanese Wizard's Code (SS&JLaw), located in Tokyo, Japan, for Mahoutokoro graduates

Tamsen Tinker Academy of General Wizarding Law (TTLaw), located in London, United Kingdom, for Hogwarts graduates

Vladislav Yevgenyevich Petrov Academy of General Wizarding Law (VYPLaw), located in Moscow, Russia, for Durmstrang and Koldovstoretz graduates


Each general wizarding law school admits around 150-200 students per year, however it is widely known that only around 50 graduate annually, as many have to repeat several years. If one fails an exam, they need to repeat an entire school year. All of the schools are private, and cost around 500 galleons per semester. The school year starts on 1st of October and ends on 21st of July. August and September represent the summer vacation. The schools do not offer accommodation and general wizarding law scholars wear black robes, accompanied by a white scarf as uniform.

Note: Aurors who have worked for five years (minimum age 23) at their respective Ministry of Magic can directly take the General Wizarding Law certification exam.

International wizarding law represents the body of rules that is legally binding on Ministries of Magic in their interactions with other Ministries of Magic, individuals, organisations, and other magical creatures. It covers a variety of activities, such as diplomatic relations, conduct of war, trade, witches and wizards rights and sharing of magical resources. It is not uncommon for international wizarding law to also concern itself with relations across different legal jurisdictions between witches and wizards, and sometimes also companies, corporations, and other magical entities. International wizarding lawyers can work as representatives of their Ministry of Magic, lawyers of the International Confederation of Wizards, at Magical trade wizarding law firms, or have their own organisation for protecting either wizards and witches' rights, magical creatures rights, or magical environmental rights. Compared to general wizarding lawyers, international ones rarely to never freelance.

International wizarding law studies last for four years, followed by two years of practice at the International Confederation of Wizards. Then they can take their certification exam, which is organised annually by the International Confederation of Wizards, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The prerequisites for being admitted in the international wizarding law schools are as follows: graduation with top grades from one's affiliated wizarding school, advanced knowledge of History of Magic, excellency in verbal communication, and advanced knowledge of any of the following languages: Arabic, English, French, Japanese, or Russian. There is an admittance exam, which focuses on two tests: a written one of History of Magic, and an oral one, focusing on one's communication and language skills. The curriculum is as follows:

Year 1: History of Wizarding Law, History of the International Confederation of Wizards, History of Magical Creatures, History of Witches and Wizards' Rights, History of Herbology, Potions, and the Magical Environment, History of Defence against the Dark Arts, General Theory of International Wizarding Law + a selective foreign language course

Year 2: International Wizarding Law I, Magical Creatures Rights, International Witches and Wizards Rights, International Environmental Magical Law, International Criminal Law, International Wizarding Treaties and Conventions, International Wizarding Diplomacy

Year 3: International Wizarding Law II, Wizarding Criminology and Criminalistics, Wizarding and Muggle Ethics, Magical Rhetoric, Investigative Wizarding Methodology and Applicability, Muggle History and Society, Wizarding Politics, Goblin Negotiations, Centaur Ethics, Spirits Exorcism, Elf Mediation, Port key and Apparition Ethics

Year 4: Applicability of International Wizarding Law, Wizarding Contracts, Unbreakable Vow Ethics, History of the Unforgivable Curses, Politics and the Wizarding Society


The two years of practice take place in the International Confederation of Wizards Department which focuses on the wizarding law scholar's interest and specialisation.

The International Wizarding Law Schools are:

Amandine Blanc High Institute of International Wizarding Law, located in Toronto, Canada

Aras Astrauckas Academy of International Wizarding Law, located in Minsk, Belarus

Juma Al Ghurair High Institute of International Wizarding Law, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Malivalaya Wattana Academy for International Wizarding Lawyers, located in Bangkok, Thailand

Renato Fernando Carlos Oscar Roque Ruis de Mello Vargas High Institute of International Wizarding Law, located in Lisbon, Portugal

Sergio Donato Alfonso Desiderio Cifuentes de Senillosa Azarola Santillian Academy of International Wizarding Law, located in Havana, Cuba


Each international wizarding law school admits exactly twenty students per year, and each promotion is known to graduate on time. All of the schools are private, accept international students, and cost around 1000 galleons per semester. The school year starts on 1st of October and ends on 21st of July. August and September represent the summer vacation. The schools do not offer accommodation and international wizarding law scholars wear white robes, accompanied by a red scarf as uniform.

Note: Inspector Aurors who have worked for five years (minimum age 28) at the International Confederation of Wizards can directly take the International Wizarding Law certification exam.

medical secondary education

healing schools Gaining admission to a Healing school is exceptionally competitive; excellent grades alone in no way guarantee acceptance. Conversely, an applicant's weak area - for instance, a poor N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. grade - may be overcome by strengthening other components of the application; however, this is an intensely difficult feat.

The application cycle begins on the first of August of the year prior to the expected matriculation date, with a submission deadline of the first of October, and acceptances are granted on a rolling basis throughout the year until all seats are filled. For this reason, aspiring students are encouraged to apply early. Applicants must possess or submit, at minimum:

- strong letters of recommendation
- appropriate N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s; includes the equivalent of the core courses plus one additional subject; see below for details
- a well-rounded application, preferably with evidence of leadership roles
- at least 100 documented shadowing hours
- documented volunteer hours; medical and, preferably, also non-medical
- competent interview skills; an in-person interview is required before an offer of admission will be considered
- a personal statement that demonstrates the student's dedication to a career in Healing


The N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. requirements as they equate for each of the primary education schools are listed below. They consist of the five "core" courses, plus one additional subject. The sixth N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. may theoretically be in any subject, though the recommendation is indicated in parentheses.

Stealth & Healing
(Advanced Magic Theory)
In the event that an applicant receives a failing grade in any of the required N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s, he or she may re-sit the examination. If a passing grade is obtained, he or she may choose to apply for the current cycle (if re-sat before the deadline of the first of October) or to wait a year before applying. Students with "lukewarm" credentials are strongly encouraged to take a year after graduation to bolster their application with additional shadowing, research, or medically-related work or volunteer opportunities before applying.

Once admitted, students complete four years of schooling, colloquially referred to as H1, H2, H3, and H4: two years of lecture-based non-clinical courses intended to bring all students up-to-speed on the content covered by the required N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s (H1 & H2), followed by one year of clinical rotations during which the student is exposed to all specialties (H3), and one year of specialization in the student's field of choice (H4; also called residency). Examinations are administered after each unit / topic of study during H1 and H2 (officially recorded as Pass/Fail) and after each clinical rotation during H3 (officially recorded as percentage grades). Residency may be completed either at the student's home institution or at an outside institution, provided that any additional requirements for the outside institution's particular program are met: including language proficiency.

The robe colors for Healers-in-Training are peach (in France) or lemon-yellow (everywhere else).

In order to become licensed, in addition to passing their school examinations aspiring Healers must also pass three 8-hour-long licensing examinations: the first at the end of H2 covering any knowledge-based information from the pre-clinical years, the second at the end of H3 that is skills-based, and the third at the end of residency (H4) that is both knowledge-based and skills-based. While the examinations are not intentionally designed to trick students, they do require an incredible depth and breadth of information that is difficult to master; furthermore, the sheer length of the exam poses yet another challenge in and of itself. The licensing exams are scored, though unless a student wishes to pursue a particularly competitive residency program or enter a particularly competitive field, a "Pass" of any caliber is generally sufficient to secure the desired specialty. Each licensing exam may be taken a maximum of three times, and may only be re-taken in the event that a student does not pass the examination. The student may re-take the exam after a six-month grace period: during this time, s/he is expected to continue to accrue clinical hours with a superior and/or work on research projects in addition to studying for the re-exam.

Licensing renewal examinations must be completed once every seven years to ensure Healers are keeping up with their practice by maintaining their knowledge and skills.

Unfortunately, it is not wholly uncommon for students to fail out of school altogether. In attempt to combat this, nearly all schools have various policies in place to ensure that students have access to confidential educational and/or emotional support at any time.

mediwizard schools The entrance requirements for Mediwizard/-witch schools are generally less stringent than that of Healing schools in that they tend to be somewhat more "forgiving" of areas of weakness, provided that the remainder of the application is strong. However, this does not in any way imply that the program is easy; the schedule and emotional toll are hardly less demanding, and it is not uncommon for students to realize the field is simply not for them and drop out.

The application cycle begins on the first of August of the year prior to the expected matriculation date, with a submission deadline of the first of October, and acceptances are granted on a rolling basis throughout the year until all seats are filled. For this reason, aspiring students are encouraged to apply early. Applicants must possess or submit, at minimum:

- strong letters of recommendation
- appropriate N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s ~ exact specifications vary by school, but almost always include the equivalent of the core courses (Charms, DADA, Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration)
- proof of a clean bill of health, ascertained by physical examination
- a personal statement that demonstrates the student's dedication to a career as a Mediwizard/-witch


The N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. requirements as they equate for each of the primary education schools are listed below. They consist of the five "core" courses, plus one additional subject. The sixth N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. may theoretically be in any subject, though the recommendation is indicated in parentheses.

In the event that an applicant receives a failing grade in any of the required N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s, he or she may re-sit the examination. If a passing grade is obtained, he or she may choose to apply for the current cycle (if re-sat before the deadline of the first of October) or to wait a year before applying.

Once admitted, students complete two structured years of schooling followed by 3200 hours of field training overseen by a Senior Mediwizard/-witch, typically over a period of two years. The first two years - colloquially referred to as "Medi1" and "Medi2" - consist of lecture-based non-clinical courses intended to bring all students up-to-speed on the content covered by the required N.E.W.T.s/W.E.N.D.I.G.O.s. The remaining part of the program - often called "Field" - consists of a minimum of 3200 hours of field-based training under the supervision of a certified Mediwizard or Mediwitch.

The robe colors for Mediwizards/Mediwitches-in-Training are mint green (in France) or orange (everywhere else).

In order to become certified, aspiring Mediwizards and Mediwitches must meet several additional criteria. Given the nature of their job, they must be able to successfully apparate and to successfully complete side-along apparition under less-than-ideal circumstances. Additionally, they must pass two certification examinations: the first (a written exam) at the end of Medi2 which tests their lecture-based knowledge, and the second (a simulation-based exam) at any point after they have accumulated at least 2700 hours of training. This simulation-based exam tests - among the other skills they have learned - their ability to apparate and perform side-along apparition under (simulated!) stressful conditions; students are not placed in any real danger during this examination, but are strongly encouraged to treat the encounter as though it is a real situation. Each certification examination may be taken a maximum of three times, and may only be re-taken in the event that a student does not pass the examination. The student may re-take the exam after a six-month grace period: during this time, s/he is expected to (continue to) accrue field hours with a superior in addition to studying for the re-exam.

Re-certification examinations must be completed once every three years to ensure Mediwizards and Mediwitches are keeping up with their practice by maintaining their knowledge and skills.

locations


For most of the major institutions, both Healing and Mediwizard/Mediwitch schools (†) are located on the same campus, and both are affiliated with a nearby primary hospital (pinterest). It is not uncommon for H1/H2 students and Medi1/Medi2 students to take a few mutual courses together, though the extent of this interprofessional collaboration may vary slightly from institution to institution. Below is a list of the major institutions organized by the typical primary school regions: to read more about a specific institution (ward floors, played personnel/students, etc.), click on its name to be directed to its respective section, included later in this guide.

veterinary medicine


Defined to be the practice of Healing non-human creatures and beasts (magical and non-magical), veterinary medicine is thus considered a separate entity from the above described professions of Healing and Mediwizard/-witch. Please note that veterinary medicine (a medical/healing field) is a completely separate profession from Magizoology (magical naturalism/ research), however there is potential for overlap: for example, a licensed veterinarian who specializes in treating animals housed within a sanctuary or on a reserve may have some basic Magizoology training. The salary for a veterinarian may vary considerably based on location and specialty choice, but typically falls somewhere between that of a Mediwizard/-witch and that of a Healer.

Nearly all veterinarians practice either privately or in small-group-run clinics, though emergency care and hospital equivalents do exist; consequently, ease of access to veterinary services may vary considerably from region to region. While there are quite a few smaller independent veterinary schools scattered around the world, many of the better-known institutions are located near or are in some way affiliated with the major Healing and Mediwizard/-witch schools in a particular region; however, there are considerably less veterinary schools to match the somewhat comparatively lower demand for the profession, and so not every medical institution will have an associated veterinary school.

While the specific courses within the curriculum and - obviously - the patient population differ from the human and humanoid practices, the requirements are no less lax. The study of veterinary medicine is equally as demanding and competitive as Healing, and the requirements for admission as well as the structure of the curriculum are effectively identical, with the exception of a few different N.E.W.T./W.E.N.D.I.G.O. requirements listed below. Like Healing school, veterinary school lasts four years, the curriculum is structured in the same manner as Healing schools (two years of lecture-based courses + two years of clinical work under supervision), and students take three licensing examinations at the same intervals as that of Healing schools. Please refer to the Healing schools above for further details.

All veterinary schools in the wizarding world cover the commonalities of both non-magical and magical creature care and management, though some may favor a particular species more heavily than others. For instance, the MH-established Piegnarbeau Centre for Equine Studies is located in the MH-established wizarding village of Viennimont, France, and focuses primarily on horses, with the magical breeds emphasized slightly more than non-magical breeds. All veterinary schools also have at least one Magizoology (Magical Naturalism) course and embedded within the curriculum.

As with Healing, magical veterinarians may specialize if they so choose during their fourth year of schooling. The most common specialties are listed below, though it is by no means all-inclusive.

- General Practice
- High-Risk Creatures; designated by a Ministry of Magic Classification of XXXX (4) or XXXXX (5)
- Large Animal
- Small Animal
- Species-specific; i.e. Dragon, Equine, Hippogriff, etc.


Please note that, due to the nature of dragons, they may only be cared for by veterinarians specializing either specifically in dragons or in High-Risk Creatures (not in other, broader categories such as Large Animal, General Practice, etc.). Re-certification examinations must be completed once every five years to ensure veterinarians are keeping up with their practice by maintaining their knowledge and skills.

the dilys derwent school for healing


the idea for this specialized school and this guide is courtesy of Lowri


location: London, near St. Mungo's

layout: Concealed in a decrepit looking apartment block building, the school within is a maze of corridors and classrooms. The building is built in a rectangle, in a gothic style, with a large courtyard in the middle that has a fountain with Dilys Derwent in the centre. The architecture is intricate and well cared for, and the courtyard is planted with with seasonal flowers and kept tidy by the caretaker.

about: Named for the celebrated Healer and Headmistress of Hogwarts, the Dilys Derwent School for Healing is one of the top teaching facilities in the world for scholars of medicine. Nearly all staff teaching at St. Mungo's attended the DDS, and many Healers elsewhere studied at the school because of its excellent reputation. As being a Healer is a very tough job, it is only right that this is a school for the elite. Candidates are interviewed by the Master of the school and hand selected. If the Master does not believe the interviewee is up to being a Healer he will not let them waste their time studying to become one.

Once accepted into the DDS, students will spend two years studying magical treatment. After these two years they will spend a further two years under the watch of a qualified Healer, with one day a week (usually a Wednesday) being spent back at the DDS to keep up a progress report. After these four years are completed Healers-in-training must take an exam, which is very exhausting and combines knowledge from all four years into just two hours. There is no grading system other than a pass or a fail. Once passed, students may move on to work as a qualified Healer, either at St. Mungo's or elsewhere. If a student fails they may take the test a further three times, but must wait for a six month period between each time taking the exam. These six month intervals are normally divided between studying and shadowing a superior.

The Dilys Derwent School for Healing accepts students from around the world, though it is required that if they are learning here that they can communicate in English. Students wear lemon yellow robes, so that when working in St. Mungo's they can easily be identified from fully-fledged Healers. The school prides itself on its high pass rate and well behaved students, and will not hesitate to expel students. Those studying at the DDS do not live on campus, but often rent apartments in and around London. The Master is currently an elderly man by the name of Charles Frobisher, and all Masters are well experienced in the field of medicine - most having been in it for near half a century.

To be accepted into the Dilys Derwent School for Healing, students require N.E.W.T.s in the classes detailed above.


gunhilda of gorsemoor's school for mediwtiches and mediwizards


the idea for this specialized school and this guide is courtesy of Nik and Lowri


location: Edinburgh, Scotland

layout: Located in the outer city limits of Edinburgh the school is set in idyllic gardens, with the buildings resembling a small castle. The main building is where teaching takes place, with the outer buildings comprising of student accommodation -- which is essentially a room and shared bathroom or en-suite. Shared rooms are available at a lower price than single rooms, and en-suite bathrooms are at an extra cost.

about: Named in honour of the medieval Healer Gunhilda of Gorsemoor, this school for Mediwizards and witches was founded shortly after the Dilys Derwent School for Healing, and is the primary source for British Mediwizards. Hopeful Mediwizards used to go to the DDS alongside the Healers, however it soon became apparent that the school was neither big enough nor practical, and so the former private practice that is now known as Gunhilda of Gorsemoor's School for Mediwitches and Mediwizards was established. Much like the DDS, applicants to the GGS are interviewed by the school's Master and are then notified by owl if they have been accepted. The current Master of the school is Margaret "Maggie" Logan, who served as a Mediwitch for over fifty years before her retirement.

Upon acceptance into the school students spend two years studying magical treatment. After these two years they spend an additional year under the watch of a qualified Healer at St. Mungo's, with one day a week (usually a Thursday) being spent back at the GGS to keep up a progress report. Once this year is up another is spent shadowing a senior Mediwizard in the field, with one day a week back at the school for a report (this time a Friday). After these four years are completed Mediwizards-in-training must take an exam, which is very exhausting and combines knowledge from all four years into just two hours. There is no grading system other than a pass or a fail. Once passed, students may move on to work as a qualified Mediwizard, either for St. Mungo's or elsewhere. If a student fails they may take the test a further four times (one extra time compared to a Healer), but must wait for a four month period between each time taking the exam. These four month intervals are normally divided between studying and shadowing a superior.

The GGS is slightly cheaper to attend because of the slightly lower wages paid in the profession, however, like its sister school it is one of the top schools in Europe for Mediwizard training. All students must be able to communicate effectively in English. Students wear orange robes so that they can be identified from fully-trained Mediwizards who wear sky blue robes. During the first two years students are offered room and board within the grounds (at an additional cost to tuition), but due to the shift in focus to London in the latter two years students must find their own accommodation and transport. Students are educated in basic diagnosis, temporary cures for some afflictions, and safe methods of transporting the ill. Any students who have not already passed their Apparation Test can pay for lessons; this takes place during the summer preceding the school year.

To be accepted into the Gunhilda Gorsemoor School, students require N.E.W.T.s in the classes detailed above.


the astrid holmgren wetterstrand school of animals and aquatic healing


the idea for this specialized school and this guide is courtesy of Fee


location: Hasslöv, Laholm, Halland County, Sweden

layout: Located near the coast of Hasslöv, Sweden, the Wetterstrand School was established inside an abandoned muggle house. Though it appears normal on the outside, the building has been magicked to expand once one walks through the doors. The ground floor houses the administrative office for the school, as well as the kitchen and storage room. The second floor is reserved for the classes offered at the school, each room with its own theme to fit the subject that is taught there. Behind the main building are two additional identical buildings that house the students. Each room houses two students and is available for a low rental fee.

about: Newer than most of the magical medical schools in Europe, the Astrid Holmgren Wetterstrand School of Animals and Aquatic Healing was established in the mid 1900s in an attempt to provide a new field of medical training to the youth of Scandinavia and the neighboring Slavic countries.

Astrid Wetterstrand began her career as a healer in a small wizarding hospital in northern Sweden. Immersed in the world of water magic and animals in the sea, she went on to teach Nautic Magic at Durmstrang. Years later she was promoted to Head of Klyk Vampira, then Deputy Headmistress, and finally Headmistress, where she served until her death in the late 1800s.

It was during an expedition to Finland that she met her doom. Investigating a horklump problem - horklumps being pink mushrooms covered in bristles, and carnivorous animals versus the plant they're seen to be - she came across a very hungry family of gnomes, who were set on devouring the horklumps around her. Being very afraid of gnomes, Astrid was frightened and pronounced dead before anyone could revive her. The Wetterstrand School opened in 1940 as a dedication to Astrid's services to the wizarding world, and the education of aquatic animals and various healing methods using water that she discovered.

The school's curriculum is one a continuation of Durmstrang's Nautic Magic class, that delves deeper into the topic of aquatic animals and the various medicines that can be made using these animals. There are three main topics of study at the Wetterstrand School: Aquatic Animals, Water Medicine, and Marine Medicine. The length of study for each program is two years at the school, two years working in the field under the apprenticeship of an experienced aquatic healer, and two additional years interning in the field of their choice, where the students go on expeditions throughout Scandinavia and coastal Slav countries, investigating different problems, working on new medicines, and furthering their studies.

To be accepted into the Astrid Holmgren Wetterstrand, students require N.E.W.T.s in the classes detailed above.


the jehenne de brigue institute of medicinal studies


the idea for this specialized school and this guide is courtesy of Nik, Elise, and Lowri


location: Andorra

layout: Upon entering the school, students are greeted by the high, dark wooden vaulted ceilings and stone walls. Built in the 15th century, the school radiates Renaissance style architecture and boasts detailed works, not only etched into the walls or the murals painted onto the ceiling, but seen in the construction and layout of the building itself. A hall lined with portraits of past notables leads to an open area, occupied by a double helix staircase in the center which leads to the floors above. Three other corridors extend from the landing. The corridor to the right goes straight under the mountain, and there students will find potions labs and storage rooms for ingredients.

Continuing on past the labs, students will find themselves in an exposed tunnel that acts as stables and houses numerous magical creatures used for research purposes. The left corridor leads to the Grand Hall, where the students and faculty meet for school discussions and meals. There are also a number of teacher's classrooms down this corridor. The final corridor leads to the greenhouse, which is one of the largest if not the largest in Europe. The ceiling is enchanted to provide near-constant sunshine and warmth, even during the winter months.

On the second level, students can find the two story library where one can find information in any medical field in question. This floor of the school is devoted to education. A dozen lecture halls and professor's offices can be found here, along with the headmaster's office and the Hospital Wing. Upstairs one can find half a dozen more lecture halls and laboratories along with offices for the professors. There are also a number of rooms dedicated for study hall. Access to the women's tower can be found here behind an enchanted door that keeps men out.

Much like the women's tower, the men's tower is enchanted to keep women out, however the entrance is found on the floor above the women's entrance. Dormitories consist of small rooms with two students per room and bathrooms shared with the floors. Roommates are assigned based on the students chosen fields of study in an effort to assist in forming 'study buddies'. On the same floor of the entrance to the men's tower, one can find a study hall and the owlery. Each floor has a view of the tiered gardens and town below, and is still furnished in the style of the architecture and design in the 15th century.

Below is a diagram of the school grounds and the surrounding area;



about: 1496 was when it all started. Western Europe was mesmerized by the continental witch-hunt that consumed countless innocent lives. Among them was a young witch named Jehenne de Brigue. Though she was not innocent of witchcraft,  she was arrested for healing a man with the use of magic. Guilty only of saving the man's life, Jehenne was taken and strapped to a ladder to be tortured until she admitted she was a witch. Once she did, the men convicted her of heresy and she was burned at the stake. While her body burned, her story lived on and traveled far and wide throughout the magical world. She was one of the few actual witches to be burned at the time. The tale finally fell upon the ears of a small group of wizards who were inspired enough to recognize her name. Thus the Jehenne de Brigue Institute of Medicinal Studies was created.

To honor her and all the others who fell for using witchcraft to heal the muggles who persecuted them, these men constructed the school that stands before us now. Deep within the mountainous terrain of Andorra, the wizards warped the face of the great mountains to create their masterpiece. It took them nine years to complete the school, and while there were only five men at the time, they saw the potential for expansion and built it so five times as many men could teach students at some point in the future. They put all of their skills into crafting the pillars, towers, and walls that created the school that could not decide whether it was half in or half out of the mountain. Tiered gardens chased the cobblestone road from the entrance in a spiral around the mountain, through the mountain itself, and out to the other side of the school where the future site of Vilaró laid waiting.

When the school was finally complete, all the men agreed that Saul Rougemont, the one who came up with the initial idea, would serve as acting headmaster. Each of the founders were healers with different specialties, and because of this opportunity to learn a wide variety of subjects in one location, the school received almost immediate interest from the graduates of Beauxbatons. To this day graduates continue to pour in through the castle gates to learn, however modifications have been made to the enrollment process. Due to the high number of applicants, one must fill out an application that is to be turned in before Halloween. Responses are owl-mailed on January 1st. If one does not receive an owl, one must look for another place to receive their higher education. If however a person's application is accepted, they must then go in for an interview with a recruiter. Diversity in fields of study for each new student is smiled upon, so if an interviewee is interested in pursuing a common subject, they will most likely get declined in this step. This isn't any ordinary medical school, it's all about the area of expertise.

If a student makes it past the second step, they are then taken to be interviewed in front of a council, among them being the headmaster and the instructors who specialize in the area the student wishes to pursue. This step consists of the student giving a presentation as to why they should be accepted. The session is timed and then students are escorted out without an answer. Acceptance or rejection letters are received by owls by March 31st. Students have approximately three months to prepare for life at the Jehenne de Brigue Institute, as school starts in the third week of July.

While it only takes four years to receive the certificate that deems a person a mediwizard or witch, students generally spend six years at the school in order to become a Healer with an area of specialty. A person doesn't get into the Jehenne de Brigue Institute every day, and most want to make their acceptance worth their while. The first two years are general classes to assure the staff that the students know what they're doing and that they really want to be there. After that, two more years are spent taking intermediate classes for their area of expertise and the student will focus on the subjects that interest him or her the most. The final two years are the advanced classes where students really get to know the subject of their specialty. Students are permitted to select up to two areas to study, but must have chosen at least one by the end of their first two years.

During the last two years at the Institute, a student will have to juggle school, work, and shadowing a Healer that has already mastered the area that they are studying. From there, all that is left to graduate is to write their thesis and pass the final exams to test the true knowledge and skill the student has. Some of the more notable aluminis' works have been published and kept in libraries across Europe. In all, only the best of the best attend the Jehenne de Brigue Institute of Medicinal Studies, and only the best of that group graduates. And to magnify the glory of all those thinking of attending, only the best of the graduates are remembered for the rest of time for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the magical medical society.

Life outside the classroom is typical. While the school is in Andorra, the official language of the school is French.  However, while it is not mandatory, it is considered eloquent to speak Catalan outside the school.  Exiting the school, one will pass through the tiered gardens and then will enter the stables which are under the mountain and house various magical creatures for research purposes. On the other side of the stables is the entrance to Vilaró, a small town that has crammed itself inside the Institute's outer and secondary walls. The buildings are tall and narrow, each about three stories high and so close to one another there's there is only room to hang one or two shirts out on the line in the alleyway. There is only one main road throughout the entire town and it slopes downward as it spirals away from the mountain face and then back towards it.

There are two ways to access Vilaró, and through it the school. One is from the nearby muggle town of Encamp. A small dirt road leads people through the woods and out of the wards that protect the school. Eventually, after a long hike, one will find themselves on the outskirts of Encamp. Another way is through the tunnel at the base of the mountain that the main road of Vilaró enters. If a person steps fifty feet inside the tunnel (no more, no less) they will be transported to a bathroom in a café owned by an old wizard in the middle of Andorra's capital (think forced apparation). To get from the café back to Vilaró one simply taps the sink handle with one's wand then turns the cold water on (don't touch the hot water, you won't like what happens) and the person will be sucked through the drain pipe and appear in the tunnel. Easy, no?

To be accepted into the Jehenne de Brigue Institute, students require N.E.W.T.s in the classes detailed above.
