Hermione Granger studied at Hogwarts so can Emma Watson be far behind? Emma Watson, star of Harry Potter movies, is slated to move to the US to study, according to reports. Earlier in 2009 she had announced that she was going to go off acting for a while to concentrate on getting her degree.

According to reports Emma had applied to a number of degree colleges in the US and the UK but chose Brown University at Rhode Island finally. According to a source, “She looked at universities over here (England) but fell in love with Brown. She has a lot of friends there.” She had reportedly toured a number of universities, including Harvard before choosing Brown University. She was studying in Headington School in Oxford and in spite of an acting career managed to get three A-grades in her A levels.

Emma Watson is also being pursued by environmental group Greenpeace to be their global ambassador. She had previously said that her end of school project involved global warming and the Hurricane Katrina. She had also revealed that she recycles and prefers public transport. The eighteen year old star was approached by Greenpeace first when she had declared “I cannot not be green”.

Emma had also revealed, “My car is electric, I recycle, I take public transportation, I try not to buy and drink bottled water. I’m not perfect, but it’’s something I feel strongly about.” This lead Greenpeace to consider her as their global ambassador and a spokesman said, “Emma would be perfect for us. She’s posh, pretty, brainy and committed. She’’s also not too star struck to care if it’’s seen as vaguely controversial. She would really help.”
