'Harry Potter' Star Emma Watson Leaving Brown University

USMagazine, Saturday, April 23, 2011, 5:11pm (PDT)

Bye bye, Brown!

"Harry Potter" Star Emma Watson is transferring from Brown University to another university in the fall, the New York Times reported.

A spokesman for Watson, 21, denied reports that the actress was "bullied" out of the Ivy League school. Instead, the star has chosen to pursue a different course not offered at Brown.

In March, Watson wrote on her official website that she would be temporarily leaving her studies to promote the final installment of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

She wrote: "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. I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter… I will still be working towards my degree… it's just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought."

The actress' rep did not mention what university Watson would be transferring to this fall.
