Malala gets into Oxford University, to study PPE

Pakistani Nobel Prize victor Malala Yousafzai got accepted in Oxford University.

Malala Yousafzai is going to Oxford University after acing her A-Level exams.

Barely a month after joining Twitter, she used her account to tell her 784,000 followers that she had won a place to study Philosophy Politics and Economics or PPE. Best wishes for life ahead!'

Ms Yousafzai also founded the Malala Fund, an advocacy organisation for girls' education worldwide. Malala, who survived an attack on her life by a terrorist when she was 15, is now a 20-year-old Nobel Peace Prize victor.

The 19-year-old moved to Birmingham after being shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan on 9 October 2012.

The post garnered many thousands of likes and retweets, as congratulatory comments rolled in.

In April, she became the youngest-ever UN Messenger of Peace.

Her offer is from Lady Margaret Hall, one of the 38 separate colleges that make up the University of Oxford.

Malala is a young woman from Pakistan who has been a long-term advocate for females to receive an education.

As an 11-year-old schoolgirl in 2009, Yousafzai spoke out about her desire to become a doctor as Taliban militants swept through her hometown.

Ms Yousafzai will be following in the footsteps of many world leaders who studied PPE at Oxford.

She also said Nigeria "has the highest number of out-of-school girls in the world".

The attack on Malala attracted widespread condemnation, including from the then US President Barack Obama, the United Nations and Britain's Foreign Secretary.
