A 91‑year‑old woman from Thailand who says it's "never too late to study" has completed her bachelor's degree after more than 10 years of work.

Kimlan Jinakul had always wanted to go to university but as a young girl simply did not have the opportunity.

But almost a lifetime later and after seeing most of her own children through university, she decided to enrol and yesterday finally picked up her degree.

Kimlan originally comes from the Lampang province in the north of Thailand. She was a smart pupil and went to one of the best schools in her province.

But moving on to university was not an option at the time, and after her family moved to Bangkok she got married and had to abandon her dream to study further.

It was her kids' academic experience that eventually led her to get enrolled herself.
