Just as Hermione's enrollment at Hogwart's was bound to come to an end, Harry Potter star Emma Watson will be transferring from Brown University to another school in the fall.

Watson's rep Vanessa Davies explained the decision by saying the actress, 21, had decided to pursue courses not currently offered at the Rhode Island school, according to The New York Times.

And as for reports that Watson's change of heart was a result of being bullied on campus, Davies shuts down that theory, saying the star – who turned 21 April 15 – had in fact developed a network of friends and "absolutely loved her time at Brown."

No word yet on which school the actress, who is currently taking time off from studying to focus on making movies, will be headed to in the fall.
