‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson is enrolling at Oxford University, reports CTV.
After quitting Brown University in April, the actress will now study English at the prestigious British university in October.
Watson said she found it difficult trying to juggle filming, modelling and studying at Brown.
“Recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible,” says Brown. “I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on ‘Harry Potter’ and to focus on my other projects.”
Now that she has a little more free time since ‘Potter’ filming is done, Brown can focus more on her studies. Since she has lived in Oxfordshire practically her whole life, she will probably find it much easier to attend Oxford as well.
Watson said she underestimated how famous she was at Brown, saying “I was in denial. I wanted to pretend I wasn’t as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I’m in and what happened.”
Good for her for sticking with school, though. I can imagine how difficult it must be with a full-time career, but she seems smart enough to pull it off.
