Watson had always intended to pursue higher education following the conclusion of Harry Potter. But many were surprised that she chose an American institution over a college in the United Kingdom. Watson explained that American universities allow students to study more than one subject at a time.
"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. 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."Aside from acing her exams while on set for Harry Potter filming, Watson went on to further her education at Brown University in Providence, RI.
