Yes, it's not all about money. Education plays a very important role in ones life.

'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson dressed down for her first day at university in America at the weekend.

Watson, who plays Hermione Granger in the blockbuster series, will study literature at the prestigious Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

Miss Watson, who looked anything but the global movie star in simple denim shorts and a white T-shirt, is likely to have to get used to having her own fan club on campus.

Classes at the Ivy League college start on Wednesday after Saturday's check-in and several days of orientation and activities.

Before hitting the books, new students can attend yoga and games night, a midnight organ concert and kickball game.

But it isn't all fun: The students will also get the chance to 'take part in discussions on diversity, sexual assault and Brown's role in the transatlantic slave trade'.

She said recently: 'But I do hope that it will be only a short time before I am known as "Emma Watson, the student from the UK" rather than "Emma Watson who starred in those Harry Potter films".'

Without confirming that Watson is actually attending Brown this autumn, Mark Nickel, the school’s director of communications, said: 'We do whatever we need to do to ensure safety and privacy, and that applies pretty much to all students.'

Asked if the school might take extra precautions to protect a young wizard, he added: 'Sure.'

It is one of the top colleges in the United States, boasting alumni including former presidents, diplomats, royalty and a heavy sprinkling of celebrities' offspring. Most recently, George Harrison's son, Dhani, attended Brown.

Brown was recently been ranked number 1 for America's 'Happiest College Students', according to the Princeton Review 2010 rankings.

It was also named 'the most fashionable school in the Ivy League' by the fashion trade journal Women's Wear Daily.

Miss Watson achieved straight As in her A-levels. However, she's not completely leaving the world of showbiz behind.

She will have to return to the studio during her holidays to film the last two instalments in the Harry Potter series.
