The Nobel prize-winning campaigner Malala Yousafzai has expressed her “joy and gratitude” after completing her degree at University of Oxford.

Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford. I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading and sleep.

Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan in 2012 after campaigning for girls to be educated in the country.

The Nasa astronaut Anne McClain, who did two masters in the UK – also replied, writing: “Congratulations on your graduation Malala! For so many, higher education is the start of great things.
