Emma Watson Set To Graduate From Brown University

Emma Watson will graduate from Brown University this month.

The 'Harry Potter' star's four years at the Ivy League school will come to an end on May 25th when she receives a degree in English Literature, the Associated Press reports.

Watson began studying at Brown University back in 2009, but in March 2011, after 18 months of studying, she was forced to take a leave of absence to continue her filming commitments.

During the 2011-12 academic year, she spent considerable time studying at Worcester College, which is part of the University of Oxford.

The 24 year-old British actress recently opened up about her experience at Brown University while appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' in March.

"I guess everyone in their freshman year is nervous and figuring it all out," Emma told the host. "I think people kind of took pity on me. She's English, she doesn't really know where she's going. And Brown were weirdly protective of me. They saw it as their role to help me have that experience. I can't really explain it."

Watson also noted the extended period of time it has taken her to complete the course is amusing to her father.

"So in America you guys graduate in four years and I graduate in five," said Emma. "I took two whole semesters off and then I worked during all of my breaks."

"My parents can't really get their heads around it. In England we graduate in three years and my dad's like, 'When is this happening? When is graduation because you've been doing this now for ages?' He's very impatient," she concluded.
