Now that Harry Potter is over, it's time to hit the books again!

Emma Watson revealed back in March that she was taking a leave of absence from Brown University to finish up her other commitments--and that bullies had nothing to do with it --but now she's ready to head back to school.

Just not at Brown...yet.

During a press conference in Manhattan for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the star said, "I haven't left Brown. I'm still enrolled at Brown. But I'm doing my third year abroad."

Except when she says "abroad," she means back home.

"I'm going to Oxford in the fall to study English for a year."

Despite filming the last Potter flick-- and some other risque projects --Watson explains she's actually not behind in school. She'll begin her junior year in Oxford and come back to Brown for her senior year.

"I'll go back to the States to do my last year. I took a semester off, but my credits actually count as an advance, so I'm no further behind. I'm still technically going into my third year."

We imagine Hermione would approve.
