Zendaya, who graduated from high school last week, has spoken about whether or not she’ll attend university.

The 18-year-old Disney star graduated from high school last week.

And the Shake It Up! actress can see herself attending university in the future, but probably not immediately.

"I definitely want to go to college," she told Access Hollywood.

"I think I'd rather wait, because careers go any kind of way. So, I'd rather keep going while I can and hopefully make enough money to buy the college I want to go to.

"Honestly, I just want to be able to go to school because I want to learn. This is something I'm passionate about and probably has nothing to do with the arts at all -- just something different because I really want to get that knowledge. It's definitely gonna happen, just not this very second."

Zendaya confesses it was really difficult getting through her last year of high school.

Although the star didn’t expressly state she suffered a case of ‘senioritis’, the stunning brunette did admit there were occasions when she considered dropping out.

"There were many times where I was like, 'I just wanna take the [GED] test!' but no," she shared. "I want that diploma and I want to graduate, and I did it.

"I've been working so hard at school and, literally, for the past however many years that I've been doing this business and school at the same time, it is so hard. Thankfully, I have teacher parents and an amazing set teacher and an amazing teacher at my school, and collectively they all kept motivating me and pushing me."

Zendaya celebrated her graduation by posting pictures from the event on Instagram and Twitter.

Her pal Taylor Swift expressed pride over Zendaya’s accomplishment by tweeting a picture of her younger friend donning a gown and academic cap while standing among all the other grads.

"I'M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE. @Zendaya #ProudOfYou (sic)," she touchingly captioned the image.
