If you don't want to be a student at the school, you can also fill the role of a ghost, an aura, or even a magical creature expert.

Once part of the school, you can enrol in any classes you like.

Whether you're into studying Defense Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy, Charms or Herbology, there is something for everyone.

If you want to become more involved with the community, you can also complete homework assignments in order to receive points for your Hogwarts house.

There's a forum on the website as well which means you can talk to other Harry Potter lovers about everything from the films to the books and characters, and discuss how your classes are going as well as.

On their website, Hogwarts is Here write: "A group of creative, passionate Harry Potter fans got together and built an online, fully-functioning Hogwarts where thousands of fans can come together, participate in online courses, earn House Points and so much more. It's Real for Us - and it'll feel real to you, too. Welcome to HiH."
