Renowned activist for women education Malala Yousafzai has successfully been accepted to Oxford University for undergraduate studies after acquiring her A-level result.

Already a Nobel Peace Prize victor and the youngest ever UN Messenger of Peace, Malala will now hope to complete the prestigious Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford. "And sometimes, like, I wanted to be a politician and become the prime minister of Pakistan".

According to the latest admissions stats, PPE is Oxford's most popular course, and only one in seven applicants (14%) get in.

She had received a conditional offer from the prestigious university earlier this year.


The peace activist was nearly killed by Taliban soldiers when they shot her in the head for her efforts to encourage girls' education in her native Pakistan.

She was treated in Birmingham, where she remained, and stayed for her GCSEs (she got 6 A*s and 4 As) and then A levels. "Your place at Oxford University 033 for Philosophy, Politics and Economics L0V0 has been confirmed".

And in April of this year she was the youngest person to be named a U.N. Messenger of Peace. Some are taught one-to-one. Oxford's academic year begins in October.
