Where she studied for a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

The 22-year-old moved to the UK after she was shot in the head in 2012 for publicly speaking about girls' rights to learn.

Malala then had to undergo many surgeries.

By 2014 after months of rehabilitation, Malala was able to join her family in their new UK home.

It was then that she and her father set up the Malala Fund.

A charity that is dedicated to girls the opportunity to achieve the future they choose.

That same year, Malala was awarded a Nobel Peace-Prize.

Alongside still fighting against the likes poverty, wars, and child marriage.

In the first image, Malala is pictured after having taken part in an Oxford tradition of 'trashing'.

'Trashing' is the chance for students to take part in messy revelry.

Where they are sprayed with the likes of champagne and silly string, and have confetti and the likes thrown at them.

The second image is a less messy.

Malala is pictured with her family, with a huge graduation cake.

In her post, she wrote: "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."

It must have been hard studying for all of her exams.

Now to rest and relax for a bit.

What an achievement!
