Emma Watson apparently fits her character in "Harry Potter" movies, Hermione Granger, that is described as a passionate student. After finishing her projects, "This Is the End" and "The Bling Ring", the 23-year-old actress is ready to go back to Brown University for Fall semester to pursue a degree. She took absence from the Ivy League school in 2011 because of work commitments.

The British actress told Rookie Mag of the university, "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 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to."

"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," Emma added, commenting with a laugh that what she did was "awesome."

"Opportunities like that, and the idea of classes being pass/fail, make it sound as if you don't have to work as hard, but it actually gives you the freedom to try out things that you wouldn't be able to do if you had to get a certain GPA on your transcript. It lets you take classes that you wouldn't otherwise," she said of her study. "And it attracts a certain type of student. [Someone] very independent who wants to take responsibility and control of what they're learning. That really appealed to me as well," she added.

Last year, Emma dodged a question from Glamour magazine which asked her about school life, because her experience in university was personal matter. "I just feel like if I start opening the door to talking about my university experience, then people just kind of own everything," she told the magazine, adding that entertainment world was crazy and "it's important to me to feel like I have my own life."
