"At the end of this summer, he would be starting his fourth year at Hogwarts, and Harry was already counting the days until he would be back at the castle again."

The Trio in their fourth year

A fourth year was a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who was in their fourth year of magical education. Fourth years were typically 14 to 15 years of age.

The fourth year was almost identical in its structure to the third; students studied two or more elective courses in addition to the core classes, and were allowed into Hogsmeade during selected weekends.[1]

During the fourth year

B4C14M1 DADA Unforgivable Curses

A fourth year Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson

Fourth year students had to take Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, History of Magic, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy and Herbology. They also had to take at least two of Divination, Arithmancy, Study of Ancient Runes, Care of Magical Creatures, and Muggle Studies. Students could choose to drop an elective if it became a burden.

Fourth years typically got more work than third years, to prepare for their O.W.L.s.[2]
