She is rumoured to be taking up her studies at England's prestigious Oxford University after she finishes promotional work for the latest Harry Potter movie.
Watson has now confirmed she will be studying "at home" and hopes her fellow Brits will be as respectful as her former classmates.
At a press conference in London, she says, "I will be focusing solely on my studies (after finishing Potter promotion). People were very respectful at Brown of my privacy - and I just hope that will be the same at home."
Watson told reporters she hopes to live on campus at college and even take up student drama, but only "if it feels right".
