Emma Watson is quitting Brown University to pursue an academic course not offered at the school, her spokeswoman has announced.
The spokeswoman, however, denied recent reports that the Harry Potter star was forced out of school because of bullying.
Emma, 21, was studying European women's history and drama at the Rhode Island Ivy League institution.
Last month, she announced her decision to take time off from the course to work on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, and attend to her other professional commitments.
A recent New York Daily News report suggested that Emma may have been unhappy at Brown University because she was not treated like a normal student. While answering questions in class, she would often be subject to jibes alluding to her role in Harry Potter.
A source told the New York Daily News: 'They would respond with a quote from Harry Potter. The most popular choice was, "Three points for Gryffindor!"'
