Emma Watson: From Hogwarts To Brown University
After years of working in front of the spotlight, Emma Watson is heading on to her next big plan- going back to school.
“Hermione” will soon go from studying scripts to studying text books. The “Harry Potter” star plans to return to college early next year to finally complete her degree.
According to Gossip Cop, the British actress, 22, will rejoin undergraduate life at Brown University in Rhode Island in January for the spring semester. Watson had returned back to a familiar spot - the Ivy League school where she originally enrolled last September 2009, and put her studies on hold in 2011 to focus on promoting the final installment in the “Harry Potter” franchise. Instead of returning to Brown right away, she then spent a semester abroad at Oxford University in fall 2011 where she met her boyfriend Will Adamowicz. She then took another break from school to film “The Bling Ring” last spring and “Noah” this fall.
When Watson first left Brown, she guaranteed her fans that she planned to return to Providence. "As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything, but recently I've had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible," the actress — best known for playing bookworm Hermione Granger in “Potter” — posted on her blog at the time. "I will still be working towards my degree. It's just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought."
