Maddox Jolie-Pitt is heading off to college.

E! News has learned that the eldest son of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will start classes at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, in late August. A source tells E! News that mom Angelina is "very proud" of the 18-year-old, who will be studying biochemistry at school.

According to People, who was first to report the college-bound news, Angelina will be dropping Maddox off at the university later this month.

"She will miss seeing him as much, but he's ready," an insider tells the outlet.

Maddox's siblings—PaxZaharaShilohVivienne and Knox—will also surely miss their brother as he heads to school.

"He's very close to his siblings and they all hope to visit," the source shares with People.

Back in 2017, Angelina opened up to E! News about Maddox working in Hollywood after he executive produced the film First They Killed My Father.

When asked if there's more producing in her eldest son's future, the Oscar winner told E! News' Zuri Hall, "Maddox worked hard. It's up to him. This [film] is very important to him, but I think so."
