Since our founding in 2015 our philosophy has always been to be student led. Each of our branches is therefore led by university students who are empowered to take the decisions that they believe will further our impacts. The work that we do could not happen without the amazing work of our branch committees.
Where we work currently -
The Bristol Branch was founded in January 2018 and we had our first tutoring session later that year in March. We started work with just 5 volunteers but this year we have over 20 volunteers working with 30 pupils! The branch has really gone from strength to strength.
This academic year we are focusing on working with more schools as we try to accommodate the new volunteers who are starting. We are really looking forward to continuing growing Students4Students in Bristol!

Oxford was the first Students4Students branch, founded on a wet afternoon in the winter of 2015. Much has changed since that first meeting, with the branch having over quadrupled in size since that first term of tutoring and all of the first committee having long graduated, but the original ethos of making change in local communities still drives what we do.
his academic year will see us to continue growing the number of recruits from Oxford Brookes as we seek to continue expanding our branch. We are really excited to take this opportunity and look forward to growing the number of pupils we can work with.

The Durham branch, founded in 2017, has quickly become Students4Students largest branch, with over 50 tutors. The close co-operation with the Durham Student Union, pioneered by Durham’s first Chair (Eithar) has now become the standard model across the other branches. Durham has continued this enterprising spirit by exploring how we can partner with other student organisations to grow our reach.
This year we are working to increase the involvement our tutors have in decision making at the branch level. We know that our volunteers have so many amazing ideas, we just need to help make them a reality!
