Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist and Nobel Prize laureate, has received an offer to study at a U.K. university. There are speculations that she may be going to Oxford to pursue higher education.
She is said to be preparing for her A-Levels at a girls' school in Birmingham. The Guardian reported that, while Malala Yousafzai is known for being vocal about girls' education rights, she has been mum on where she is headed for her next educational venture.
The 19-year-old activist did reveal that she had received an offer to study at a U.K. university. She just needed to achieve three As in order to study politics, philosophy and economics (PPE).
She confirmed the conditional offer during a speech at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) annual conference. She revealed that her focus right now is to take the A-Levels exam as well as continue her work and her studies.
Yousafzai also noted that she will be continuing her work for the Malala Fund. She stated her commitment to making sure that every child would get the opportunity to go to school, as is their basic human right.
According to Telegraph, she will most likely be taking up PPE at Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford University. Malala Yousafzai previously said that she wanted to take a politics degree at Stanford University in the U.S.
However, after taking her A Levels in history, math, religious studies and geography, she confirmed that she will be completing her education in Britain. She has also previously said that she applied to Oxford.
It was reported that Malala Yousafzai has already had an interview with Oxford University, for which she was anxious and excited. It is confirmed that she wants to become a full-time activist, lawyer or politician and taking up a degree in philosophy, politics and economics can help her achieve those goals.
