A wizarding school located in Africa.
Uagadou is the largest wizarding school in the world and also the oldest school in Africa. It is located in the Mountains of the Moon, in equatorial Africa. The school specialises in Astronomy, Alchemy, and Self-Transfiguration. Students at Uagadou are taught in the traditions of wandless magic which were prevalent in Africa before visiting European wizards introduced the wand. The school has been described as “a stunning edifice carved out of the mountainside and shrouded in mist.”
Uagadou has a school Animagi Team. The students are famous for being able to change themselves at will into cheetahs, elephants, and the like.
Students who attend Uagadou learn that they've been accepted into the school by Dream Messenger. The Messenger appears in the child's dreams. When the child awakes, they are discovered to be clutching a token, often a rock with a symbol on it.
This school is also mentioned in the Book of Potions videogame, produced by Sony from information provided by J K Rowling (BoP). It was also included in a section of "Information from Pottermore" in the new editions (2014-15) of the Harry Potter books.
