Malala gets admission into Oxford University

Posted August 17, 2017

Among those celebrating was the activist and Nobel prize victor, Malala Yousafzai, 20, who said she is excited after gaining a place to study philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Oxford.

In March, she revealed she had received an offer to study the three subjects at a United Kingdom university, on condition of achieving three As in her A-levels. "And sometimes, like, I wanted to be a politician and become the prime minister of Pakistan".

Yousafzai beat more than 1,500 other applicants when she won a conditional offer earlier this year, which is now official after she met her offer requirements of three A grades, which is the standard offer for PPE.

The Nobel Prize laureate, who was shot in the head by Taliban for her ambitions a few years back, confirmed the tidings by tweeting out the message she received from her new university.

PPE is a multi-disciplinary course - students take modules in the three separate branches at once. 20 year old will study philosophy, politics and economics. Some are taught one-to-one.
