'Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?'

It's been almost a decade since the final book was released but the magical world of Harry Potter has not stopped growing, and following J.K. Rowling's recent confirmation of at least four other wizarding schools around the globe, the imaginations of Potter fans everywhere are running wild. Blizzard artist Even Amundsen has even dreamt up a teaching staff for his ancient Nordic school, Vølurheim – check out some of his badass creations below.

Torbjørn Jotunhorn: Headmaster

Looks like Professor Jotunhorn might run a tighter ship than Dumbledore – being the little rebel that he is, Harry probably wouldn't have lasted five minutes.

Kari 'Mannevond' Sigfridsdottir: Charms and Curses Professor

Sigfridsdottir has got sass! She certainly looks like she could give Flitwick a run for his money.

Grimstav Draugsleiven: Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor

As if he isn't fearsome enough, Professor Draugsleiven is also a veteran warlock of the Troll Wars. Imagine Snape coming face to face with this guy – now, that's a duel I would like to see.

Maybe it would be as awesome as this classic duel between Snape and Professor McGonagall in Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Mumrikk Stigandur: Herbology Professor

Look familiar? Professor Stigandur is heavily inspired by the character Snufkin from the Moomin series, who goes by Snusmumrikken in Norwegian.

Hulda Kvænangsdottir: Healing Arts Professor

Professor Kvænangsdottir is inspired by the hulder, a seductive forest-dwelling creature found in Scandinavian folklore - also known as skovfrue or 'Lady of the Forest'.

Ragnhild Stubbemoen: Dragon Lore and Care Professor

A world authority on the Norwegian Ridgeback, Ragnhild is known to get along better with her dragons than with her students. Sounds like Hagrid's perfect woman!

Dagfinn Snauholt: Keeper of Keys and Lights

Also inspired by Scandinavian folklore, Professor Snauholt takes the form of a nisse, a mythological creature typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. Here he is riding on his proud steed, Knerten.

If you love Even's illustrations, you can find more of his brilliant concept art, here.

So that's the UK, France, Bulgaria, Brazil, Japan, Uganda, the US and now Scandinavia covered when it comes to magical education.

Where do you think the next school will appear?
