Emma Watson Leaving Brown University

Jaap Buitendijk/Warner Bros.(LONDON) -- Harry Potter star Emma Watson, who announced last month she was taking time off from Brown University to concentrate on her acting career, now says she will not return to the Ivy League university.

According to Britain's Sky News, Watson's rep says the 21-year-old actress will transfer to another university in the fall to pursue a course not offered at Brown.

The spokesperson denied reports that Watson, a.k.a. Harry Potter's Hermione, is leaving the Rhode Island school because she was being bullied by other students. The rep said Watson "has absolutely loved her time at Brown" and made good friends there.
