Los Angeles, May 27 IANS | 2 months ago

Actress Emma Watson has received a degree in English Literature after five years of studying.


The graduation ceremony was Sunday and her mother Jacqueline Luesby was also present on the occasion. Emma graduated after five years - and three enrolments - at university, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Watson shared the exciting news on Twitter by posting a photograph of herself in a cap and gown.

The 24-year-old took five years to complete the course, which she began in 2009 at Brown, before dropping out to shoot the final Harry Potter film - "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2", in which she starred as the studious witch Hermione Granger.

Then, having transferred to Oxford University for another go at it in 2011, she was cast in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and put her studies on hold once more.

She returned to Brown in January and has now completed her studies.

In an interview with Elle Magazine last month, Watson revealed that once she began attending the prestigious Ivy League university in Rhode Island, many people told her it would be impossible to graduate.

"So many people told me it wasn't possible. I kept saying, 'I don't care.' This is what I want. And graduating will, for me, be really symbolic of all of that. I will be there. And I will be throwing a huge party. And getting very drunk," she said.
