Emma Watson has changed her mind and will not return to Brown University this fall.
In March the actress left a statement on her blog saying she was taking a semester off from college so she could handle some new professional jobs and close out the Harry Potter movies.
Late last week, online reports surfaced that she would be dropping out of the Rhode Island institution because of bullying but her spokesperson says not so fast: it’s just a change in the courses she wants to pursue, and Brown doesn’t offer them.
Vanessa Davies, spokesperson for the 21 year-old actress said Emma “absolutely loved her time at Brown” making many good friends from her short time there.
Davies does say Watson will be attending a different college in the fall, but did not name which university.
Watson will have lots of chances to answer questions about this soon – she will be doing loads of press for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in the coming months.
She is scheduled to start work on The Perks of Being a Wallflower with Logan Lerman, Nina Dobrev and Mae Whitman next month.

As soon as she can, Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez wants to call it quits to television series acting and concentrate on movies and college. While she is looking forward to filming WOWP again in August, the Disney star has her sights set on the future and wants to be like actresses who go to college and stay in the industry.
“I’m going to try to pull a Natalie Portman,” Gomez says, keeping her fingers crossed that she’ll get into and graduate from her “dream” school, Northwestern University.
“Natalie went to Harvard while shooting ‘Star Wars,’ ” she says, making it clear she’d like to move on to movies eventually.
“I don’t know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her – that seems like a bunch of stress right there.”
For now she is focusing on her work and not on the romantic rumours surrounding her. The 16 year old Gomez is thinking of studying drama and journalism in college.
