About us

Finding the right study programme at the right university quickly and applying for it simply and directly without having to search for information on hundreds of websites – that must be possible nowadays!

We already had this thought in 2017, shortly after it took us ages to decide on a place and enrolled at an university. It simply takes far too long to finally find out which documents have to be submitted on time, when, where, and by what means. Especially, if you are not only applying for one study programme or university, but for several. After sending the application, some documents are still missing and have to be submitted by email, which makes the whole application and enrolment process even slower. After some conversations with friends who had the same problem, one thing was clear: we have to solve this problem. This is how Compounder® was brought to life.

Some time and research work later, it became clear that something needs to be changed – not only on the side of the prospective students, but also on the side of the universities, in order to make the whole process more efficient. No sooner said than done: in co-operation with universities, we have developed a solution that makes it possible to automatically check every single domestic and foreign application for completeness and admissibility for studying in Germany.

With Compounder®, we not only want to provide young prospective students with a modern and simple way to obtain information about studies and to directly apply for their desired study place. We also want to relieve universities of the time and work involved in applicant management – all on a single platform..
