After putting off college for a year, Emma enrolled at Brown in 2009. She took a break in 2011 while promoting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and then studied in her native, England, at the prestigious University of Oxford for an academic year.

Earning a diploma is especially important to the 24-year-old because, as she’s previously admitted, “people told me it wasn’t possible.” Take that!
