Trio library

The Trio in their fourth year

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

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

During the fourth year

DADA Unforgivable Curses

A fourth year Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson

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

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