Oliver Bater speaks with Mustafaen Kamal, who has founded an initiative to provide free tuition to students worst affected by the latest government and is looking to Oxford Students for help.
“For a country that is at the forefront of education, with some of the world’s leading universities, to face this level of inequality is startling. The fact that an initiative like ours even exists seems to me quite a damning statement about the political situation in the UK. Our aim is to arrange 100,000 hours of tuitions for students, and we hope that the expertise of our tutors can help make up for some of the time lost in the classroom.”
