"Malala Yousufzai was discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham as an inpatient yesterday to continue her rehabilitation at her familys temporary home in the West Midlands," the hospital said in a statement.
She "is well enough to be treated by the hospital as an outpatient for the next few weeks," it said.
She is still due to be re-admitted in late January or early February to undergo cranial reconstructive surgery as part of her long-term recovery and in the meantime she will visit the hospital regularly to attend clinical appointments.
