Potterheads! Your dream of studying at the wonderful Hogwarts can finally come true. Now there’s good news and bad news (as always). So the bad news is that you’ll have to go Poland if you want to study at the College of Wizardry and the good news is…it’s not exactly impossible! So this wonderful thought came to a few Polish and Danish Harry Potter fans who were determined to take their magical education into their own hands – and the College of Wizardry was born. Set in a Polish castle, around 200 live-action role players from 11 countries gathered for a few days in November to experience the first session of Czocha College of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Curious to know more, aren’t you? Check this video out!
Students (who are cool enough to do this) are sorted into five houses: Durentius, Faust, Libussa, Molin and Sendivogius and they have to complete their S.P.E.L.Ls (Senior Protective Enchanter’s Lifelong License) to pass. I know I’d top this.
The school is filled with a variety of professors, all of them have certain eccentricities which are often associated with Hogwarts professors. So there are ‘bumbling, absent-minded professors with scant memory of their own youth‘ and ‘sharp-tongued young lecturers‘ who’ll put you in place. If they are anywhere close to these two, I’m sold!
The second session has been scheduled for April 9-12, 2015, still in Poland, and will cost attendees about $345. What are you waiting for? Let’s start saving! Or even better, let’ all unite an open a branch here in India! Who’s with me?
