Re: Hermione & Neville 2008: Commitment, Competence, Compassion

Higher Education

For many Hogwarts offers an education that will give them life skills and everything they need for a productive professional life.

However, we have to recognise that some high flyers could achieve so much more if they could stay in education after doing their NEWTs. We need highly qualified experts to advance magical techniques and knowledge.


We have therefore initiated a completely new programme to found the first ever Wizarding Higher Education and Resarch Institution:

Tyneham University




Tyneham is a deserted village on a UK army base. We have obtained permission to rebuild the village, officially as a tourist attraction, which will restore its original 19th century state (no electricity).



The project will go hand in hand with the preservation and restoration of a uniquely unspoiled landscape.



We have made great progress in bringing an international research centre and university to the UK. The Ministry under Minister Shacklebolt has begun negotiations with other states, and a large number of nations have decided to participate in our project, contributing funds and claiming university places in return.

Follow the development of the project here:

At this stage work is progressing extremely well, and we'd expect to be able to open the whole site soon and start university business with the academic year 2009/10.

We hope for a great boost for the local economy, a wide range of jobs for support staff, and great opportunities for young people and highly qualified researchers alike.



Tyneham main entrance


We expect that Tyneham will give the UK a real edge in magical research and development. The University's work will inform teaching at Hogwarts as well as various branches of wizarding business.

In collaboration with other countries, Tyneham will also implement research programmes on issues that are pressing concerns for us all, for example health matters and environmental issues.
