About Us

Our Story

CamVision Education was founded in 2017 by a group of former academics and graduates from the University of Cambridge. 

With a diverse, international range of backgrounds in the team, we were struck by the differences in experience we and many of our classmates and colleagues went through while applying to one of the world’s top universities. 

In recent years, super-curricular learning has become one of the hottest topics surrounding British university applications. In today’s hyper-competitive environment, students are being pushed to do as much as they can to stand out from their peers and demonstrate their passion and drive to achieve in their studies.

However, we found that access to super-curricular guidance was something that depended almost entirely on background and school situation.  International students found their access to it even more limited.

Super-curricular learning was once the domain of a very select few. We want to make it something for everybody.
