Emma Watson is still a Brown student

Emma Watson has cleared up speculation she has quit Brown University, insisting she is still a student at the prestigious institution.

The Harry Potter star was said to have dropped out of the Providence, Rhode Island school where she has been studying English literature.

Watson is transferring to Oxford University in her native Britain for a year "abroad" - but she maintains she hasn't left Brown permanently.

She says, "I'm going to Oxford in the fall, to study English for a year. Just to explain, I haven't left Brown. I'm still enrolled at Brown, but I'm doing my third year abroad to study - at home."
