  • UK: Susan Fang
Susan co-founded Academic Powerhouse in the hope of offering global vision with a personal touch in the education, tutoring and application service industry, bridging the information gap between East and West to enable student clients to make the wisest decision on future education and career paths, and to facilitate greater public awareness of our partner institutions among prospective students, parents, academics and employers.

Susan graduated with a degree in architecture from the University of Cambridge and prior to that, North London Collegiate School, which in recent years has been consistently placed in the top 5 of the UK secondary school league table. In addition, she obtained an arts business diploma from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art. She is ranked 1st in the 2003 British Council Education Consultant Qualification Exam and is keeper of the highest score record to date. Susan has lived, studied and worked in the UK for over 28 years, maintaining on-going close contact with the heads of many independent schools and vice-chancellors of universities. Each year, along with her team, Susan successfully prepares students to be admitted to the top 10 UK independent schools and universities.
