Knightley's Ex Tells Her To Dump Uni Dreams

British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY's hopes of going to university have been dealt a blow by her ex-boyfriend and good pal JAMIE DORNAN.

The BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM beauty, 18, is hoping to enrol at former polytechnic OXFORD BROOKES UNIVERSITY in September (04).

However Irish model Dornan has been telling Knightley she could jeopardise her Hollywood career, which started to take off last year (03) when she starred in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL.

A friend of the ex-couple says, "Jamie thinks Keira is making a name for herself and can study any time, so doesn't understand why she wants to do it straightaway.

"He feels she is only 18 and the world is her oyster. He just wants to make the right decisions. Even though they split up, they are still very good friends."
