Emma Watson to attend Ivy League university in the US

Tuesday July 21, 2009

She's always stressed that fame wouldn't stand in the way of her education, and now Emma Watson has confirmed where she'll be continuing her studies.

The brunette beauty has announced she'll attend Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where she'll read Literature.

Emma, who gained three As in her A-level exams last year, will take up the place in autumn, after she's finished work on the final instalment of the boy wizard series, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.

Ever since Emma announced her intentions to go to university, speculation has been rife about which she would choose. Early reports suggested New York's Columbia University and Cambridge in the UK.

The France-born actress has said she hoped to "fade into the background a bit" once she starts her studies.
