Our journey began with a simple observation—the university application process was complicated, time-consuming and often frustrating. As former a-level graduates, we experienced it first-hand and decided without further ado to improve said process. With the knowledge and experience we gained from our own challenges, we developed Compounder. We believe in the power of excellent education and that everyone should have the chance to improve their lives through it. That is why we are here—to make the path to education accessible, uncomplicated and achievable for everybody.
We want to make the university application process as easy as possible. As former a-level graduates, we know from our own experience how tedious and confusing applying to university can be. That is why we have developed a platform that selects the most important information about studying and allows everyone to submit their application documents to various universities effortlessly and quickly.
We dream of a world where excellent education is accessible to everyone—regardless of background, status or experience. Our vision is to simplify the path to higher education so that the application process is no longer a barrier, but a starting point for everyone to realise their dreams and reach their full potential.
