London, Aug 17: Pakistani Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai got admission into Oxford University.
Yousafzai on Thursday took Twitter to announce about her enrollment to one of the world’s prestigious varsity.
“So excited to go to Oxford!! Well done to all A-level students — the hardest year. Best wishes for life ahead!” Malala tweeted on Thursday, along with a screen shot of her acceptance into the prestigious university.
The 20-year-old is going to pursue her studies in philosophy, politics and economics. In March, Malala revealed she had received an offer to study the three subjects at a UK university on condition of achieving three As in her A-levels, the Telegraph reported.
Malala was nearly killed by the Taliban in Pakistan when she campaigned for girls’ rights to education in 2012. She came into the limelight after the incident and relocated with her family to Birmingham for further rehabilitation.
In 2014, at age 17, Malala became the youngest person to be honored with the Nobel Peace Prize and has since become a symbol for the fight for human rights and education.
In April this year, she became the youngest-ever UN Messenger of Peace.
