Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has won a place at the University of Oxford to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
The 20-year-old education activist confirmed this on Twitter on Thursday morning.
She tweeted: “So excited to go to Oxford!! Well done to all A-level students – the hardest year. Best wishes for life ahead!”.
Yousafzai came into international limelight in 2012 after she was shot by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan for speaking out for the right of girls to go to school. After being treated at a hospital in Birmingham she continued her education in the city and won the Nobel Peace Prize.
