London: Actress Emma Watson is all set to join the prestigious Oxford University after quitting her course at Rhode Island`s Brown University.

The `Harry Potter` star had enrolled at the renowned university in Rhode Island to study English literature, but dropped out in April 11, amid rumours she was being bullied by classmates, reported Contactmusic.

However, Watson, 21, dismissed the rumours, insisting she simply wanted to tackle a different course not offered by Brown.

She will be joining Oxford University`s Worcester College on October 11. Brown University has a transfer programme allowing students to move to other universities for a year, one of which is Oxford.

Watson, who has lived in the county of Oxfordshire since she was a child, said she would not feel homesick during her stint at Oxford.
