Emma Watson is trading in Brown University for Hogwarts – for now, anyway.

The actress-student, 20, announced on her Web site Monday that she will be dialing back on her schoolwork to focus on her career.

“As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything,” she wrote. “But recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.”

The Harry Potter star, a sophomore at the Ivy League school, added that she wants more time to focus on the film franchise’s last installment.
