Nobel Prize winner hopes to study at Oxford University
Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel Prize winning activist who narrowly avoided death after being shot by the Taliban, has revealed that she intends to study at a British university, writes Niamh McIntyre for the Independent.

She told head teachers at the Association of School and College Lecturers annual conference last Saturday: "I'm in Year 13 and I have my A Level exams coming and I have received a conditional offer which is three As; that is my focus right now… I have applied to study PPE so for the next three years I will be studying that."

At the University of Oxford, the standard offer is AAA. Yousafzai did not reveal which college she had applied to, but previously said she had attended an interview at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. She also told the conference she would be juggling her studies with running the Malala Fund, an international charity which advocates for all girls to have access to 12 years of education.
