"Harry Potter" series star Emma Watson will attend Oxford University in the fall before returning to Brown University in the US, People reported Tuesday.

Watson, 21, announced in April that she was leaving the prestigious US university, but denied rumors that it was due to bullying from other students. "I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown," the actress said.

Speaking to reporters while promoting "Harry Potter and the Death Hallows: Part 2," Watson said, "I'm still a student at Brown. It's just that I'll spend my third year abroad at Oxford."

After her year at Oxford, Watson said, she will return to Brown for her final year.
