Emma Watson hires security team to go back to University for degreeSeptember 23, 2023Los Angeles, Sep 23 (IANS) Actress Emma Watson is heading back to school to chase a degree from Oxford. The 33-year-old actress who played Hermione Granger in all eight of the blockbuster Harry Potter films, has reportedly signed up for a part-time Master’s degree at Oxford University.But fellow students might not be able to get very close to the star as she will reportedly be bringing a heavy security presence with her, reports Mirror.co.uk.Emma, who already graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature in May 2014, will be heading to the world famous university to attend a handful of lectures.However, it is suggested she will complete most of her degree virtually – while security guards will protect her whenever she does need to go to campus. The Sun reports that the actress is keen to keep herself safe while studying.A source told the publication: “The course is for older adults and can be done on a part-time basis, which is perfect for Emma’s schedule. She only has to be on site for four or five days a year because she can do the rest of the course online from home.””Because she’s a famous actress, she’ll have a security team looking after her whenever she has classes to go to. There have been a few incidents recently and she is taking every precaution necessary to ensure her safety.”As per Mirror.co.uk, the report of Emma’s new education plans comes after a man was arrested earlier this month after trying to break into her dressing room at a fashion show in New York. The man in question has so far denied criminal trespass and disorderly conduct and his case is due to be heard in a USA court next month.–IANSaa/kvd
