  Wizard school opens in Austria
Updated 09 September 2002, 20.34
Qualified students receive a special certificate
A school for witchcraft and wizardry has opened in Austria.

Pupils of the school, which is located in the mountains of Klagenfurt, can take classes in potions and spell making.

The school is located in Southern Austria

Sorcerers' diploma

This year up to 15 apprentices will also be taught astrology, magic, the history of magic, and meditation.

If they complete six terms successfully they will be awarded a sorcerers' diploma.

The school director, Andreas Starchel, who's also known as Dakaneth, said the school's aim was to teach about the history of witchcraft.

Nature studies and Celtic and druidic teachings are also likely to feature strongly, but the Harry Potter books are not thought to be on the school's list of recommended reading.
