According to the Media reports, students at Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island, had laughed at her about her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter films. But through a message from her website Miss Watson, 21, said: "I have not at all been harassed in my life.
She said she did not familiar what she desired to do after September, but would spotlight on performing for the time being. She had joined at Brown in September 2009, primarily to learn literature.
Reports had assumed that students said "10 points to Gryffindor" - a reference to a house at Hogwarts, the school for wizards in the Harry Potter films - when Miss Watson properly replied a question in class. Miss Watson said: "I thought the requirement to let you all know the basis I took a semester off from Brown had nothing to do with hounding as the media have been telling newly.
Please don't struggle and guess about what I might do in September, nobody can perhaps recognize because I don't even know so far!”
"I have never been harassed in my life and definitely never at Brown. This '10 points to Gryffindor' event never yet happened. I undergo the need to say this because condemning Brown students of amazing as serious as harassing and this reasoning me to go away looks beyond unjust. Previous month she declared that she was taking time out of study to spotlight on her film profession.
However her spokeswoman told on previous week that Miss Watson would shift to a different university in autumn, Miss Watson's announcement said: "Please don't attempt and consider about what I might do in September - no-one can probably know because I don't even know yet! Like my other classmate Brown students I am struggling to figure out my third year and whether or not I will use up its overseas (this is ordinary)."
In the often asked questions section of her website, the first question is "why did you prefer Brown University over a British one? Her answer without mentioning date is: "I was actually ragged as to whether to stay in the UK or go to the America as allows face it the UK has some of the finest universities in the world.
But, finally, I preferred the course at Brown and actually liked the initiative of experiencing a dissimilar country and culture - and I must say I have never been more contented, I extremely love Brown."
