Zayn Malik reveals his ambition to study at university

Zayn Malik wants to study at university.

The 23-year-old singer was planning to study English in higher education before he joined One Direction, and Zayn has revealed he may revisit his ambition in the coming years.

He explained: "You know what, to educate yourself isn't that hard these days. You can do it at home.

"You can go to lectures - just sit there, which hopefully at some point, I can do - like, just sit and listen to a lecture."

Zayn said that in the event of having children in the future, he wants to encourage them to remain in education and set a good example to them.

The singer - who was engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards until last year - told the Sunday Times newspaper: "When my kids ask me in the future, and I try to tell them to go to school, they can turn around and say to me, 'F**k off dad, you were in a band!'

"I can turn around and say, 'Excuse me, I went back to school and got my degree. So you definitely have to do your homework!'"
