Emma Watson is set to study at Oxford University this autumn.

The 'Harry Potter' actress - who previously left the UK to study at America's Brown University in 2009 - will enroll at the UK educational facility in September now that the 10-year film series - which saw her star alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint - has finished, before returning to the US university for her final year in 2013.

She said: "I haven't left Brown. I'm still enrolled at Brown. But I'm doing my third year abroad I'm going to Oxford in The Fall to study English for a year."

The 21-year-old actress previously enrolled in a four-year liberal arts degree at Brown University but she was forced to put her studies on hold last year to promote 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2', which featured Emma in the role of Hermione Granger.

Speaking about the decision to take a break from university, she said: "I was commuting back and forth between the US and the UK trying to fulfil my commitment to this enormous 'Harry Potter' franchise and it just wasn't feasible. I'm only human.

"I wasn't getting the best out of either my studies or the filming, so I decided to give a proper goodbye to 10 years of work and resume my studies later."
