Kristen Stewart is reportedly rebuilding her life following her split from Robert Pattinson and a report claims the actress has enrolled in college.

In May Stewart, 23, was left devastated when Pattinson, 27, abruptly ended their four-year relationship however the "Camp X Rap" star is said to be focused on moving forward with her life. Despite being amongst Hollywood's highest paid female actresses, Stewart has reportedly enrolled to study English Literature at The University of California, in Los Angeles.

"Yes, Kristen's a Tinseltown actress worth millions but she is already considering a life after film. She never got to complete college and she wants to get a proper education," a source told the Daily Mirror UK. "She is a voracious reader and cannot wait to get going on her correspondence course."

Stewart and Pattinson rose to stardom in 2008 after starring in the hit film series "Twilight." Since then the actress, who dated Pattinson on-and-off after meeting the British actor on set, has starred in many successful films and she reportedly intends to continue working while studying for her college degree.

"It won't be easy and it will mean putting in some fairly strenuous hours. But once she's graduated, Kristen will be able to do almost anything she wants, in or out of Hollywood," a source said.

Pattinson is believed to have ended his relationship with Stewart due to recurring trust issues stemming from her 2012 affair with her married "Snow White and The Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. The actress has reportedly struggled emotionally with the split, but enrolling in college and working has helped keep her focus off of her drama-filled love life.

In a 2012 candid interview Stewart admitted that pursuing an education was always part of her life plan.

"I was always good in school like, kind of reluctantly … [and] I never, ever imagined that I wouldn't go to college; I just got caught up in things," Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter.

"What I knew when I was younger was that I wanted to know that I was going to be really challenged, and I am. I didn't want to step out of what was already really challenging me," she explained.
