Emma Watson is returning to Brown University in Rhode Island after the summer (13) to continue her studies.

The studious Harry Potter star left the college in 2011 to focus on her acting career and now she's planning to go back after making a string of movie including The Perks of Being a Wallflower and new films This is the End and Bling Ring.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I really like the fact that it has a very open curriculum, that there aren't any requirements. Really, I've kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on Potter when I was nine or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, and I could take independent studies if I wanted to on subjects that weren't necessarily in the curriculum.

"I did an independent study on the psychology and philosophy of how and why we fall in love, which was awesome."

And her love of further education has rubbed off on her Bling Ring co-star Katie Chang, who will be attending Columbia University later this year (13).

Chang says, "I picked her brain at least once or twice. I just remember her telling me that regardless of how much I wanted a different experience and wanted to get out of town and try something new that it had to be something relatively familiar.

"I'm really excited to see what the next few months hold for me. I'm really nervous but I can't wait. I just hope I won't be recognised on campus as the Bling Ring girl!"
