Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has revealed she has an offer to study at a UK university.

The 19-year-old, who was almost killed by the Taliban for campaigning for girls’ education, received a conditional offer of a place to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics if she achieves three As.

The A-level student is set to study her degree at Oxford University, the Telegraph reported.

She was speaking to a conference organised by the Association of School and College Leaders and said: "I'm studying right now.

"I'm in year 13, I have my A-Level exams coming and I have received a conditional offer which is three As, so I need to get the three As, that's what my focus is right now, and I hope to continue my work and also continue my studies.

"And I'm really thankful to you all for you support for encouraging me for my mission. That's what makes me and keeps me so strong so thank you so much for that, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak."

The teenage campaigner set up charity the Malala Fund which works to secure girls’ rights to a minimum of 12 years of education.
