Emma Watson Graduates From Brown University

Emma Watson has graduated from the prestigious Brown University in Rhode Island.

The British actress, best known as HermioneGranger in the Harry Potter movies, was among 2,000 graduates receiving degrees on Sunday.

She tweeted a photograph of herself in cap and gown, along with a single exclamation mark.

Watson graduated with a bachelor's degree in English literature from the Ivy League university.

Despite finding fame as a youngster in the Potter films, Watson was a model student at school in the UK - she scored a clean sweep of As in her GCSE and A-level exams.

The 24-year-old started at Brown in 2009, the same year she was named the highest-grossing actress of the decade by the Guinness Book of World Records.

She revealed earlier this year that there were moments when her fellow Brown students were star-struck.

"On the first day, I walked into the canteen and everyone went completely silent and turned around to look at me," she told The Sunday Times.

"I had to say to myself 'It's OK, you can do this. You just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage'."

In March 2011 she announced she was taking a break from student life to focus on her film career.

But later that year she went to Oxford University as a visiting student to read English at Worcester College.

Watson still managed to rack up film credits while hitting the books - she released both parts of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and This Is The End.

She has also starred in the recently released biblical epic Noah byDarren Aronofsky.
