Here’s one Hollywood princess that still thinks school comes first: Emma Watson, after taking a break from university, will reportedly return to school to finish her four-year degree.

According to the UK’s Telegraph, the Harry Potter star will return to the classroom this coming year.

The actress has taken a few breaks from college to accommodate her on screen career. Her first major school pause was to complete her work in the final wizardry film.

“I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on 'Harry Potter' ... and to focus on my other professional and acting projects,” she told fans at the time of her decision. “I will still be working towards my degree ... it's just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought."

The actress started her college experience at Brown University in Rhode Island. In 2011, she transferred to Oxford University in England going into her third year of school.

Despite rumors that she was being bullied in the US school, the transfer had more to do with her ability to focus stateside.

"My first two years at Brown weren't easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time,” she said. “But just because, you know, without the collegiate system ... and at Brown everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it's also much more difficult, too. You're not with a group of people all the time at one time.”

She took another brief break later in 2011 to shoot her new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Watson is set to return to Brown in January. She is reportedly working toward a degree in English.
