The Harry Potter actress, 24, will gain a bachelor’s degree in English Literature in a ceremony including 2,000 other students.

Emma started at the Ivy League university, located in Rhode Island, in 2009, which is the same year she was named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-grossing actress of the decade.

As you would imagine, being an A List actress made Emma worry how the other students would react to her.

Being a world famous actress didn't stop Emma from being just like any other student

Speaking previously of her college experience, Emma said: “On the first day, I walked into the canteen and everyone went completely silent and turned to look at me.

“I had to say to myself, ‘it’s OK, you can do this. You just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage.’”

But just because she is better known as Hermione Granger to most didn’t mean that Emma wasn’t going to act like any other student.

In an interview with US Weekly in 2013, she said: “I’ve never been asked for an autograph on campus. I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.”

During her time at Brown, Emma has juggled her studies with releasing both parts of the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and her most recent film titled Noah.
