The UK University Guide - A New On-Line University Guide for the 21st 
Century 
Dr Bernard Kingston has announced today a new venture with publishers 
Constable & Robinson to meet the growing national and international need 
for quality data on UK Universities.

Bernard Kingston, Partner in Mayfield University Consultants, and 
Constable & Robinson Publishers have joined forces to develop an 
interactive website aimed at university applicants, their parents and 
their advisers. The need for quality qualitative and quantitative data on 
UK higher education has never been greater, with more international 
students coming here than ever before, and serious competition for these 
applicants within the sector. This new venture is based on extensive 
research carried out in collaboration with The University of Sheffield.

Dr Kingston is probably best known as the co-author of "The Times Good 
University Guide", and Mayfield Consultants as the long-standing and 
respected compilers of the University League Tables published in The Times 
and Times Higher.

The UK University Guide will be completely independent and impartial so 
readers can be assured that the material within its pages is unashamedly 
student-centred. Given the recent decision by UCAS that all applications 
to UK universities should be made on-line, it clearly makes sense to move 
relevant information on-line and away from the rather static print media. 
They plan to have the site up and running by mid July to coincide with the 
2007 clearing round and well in advance of deadlines for 2008 entry to the 
universities.

The website will feature all the usual Mayfield ranking tables and much 
more, and will benefit from regular updating of advice and information and 
the introduction of dynamic user-generated content.

In summary, this on-line new University Guide anticipates the increased 
use of electronic information in schools and colleges and takes advantage 
of the opportunities associated with web-based material

Nova Jayne Heath of Constable & Robinson said: 
  Higher Education in the UK is the envy of the world. This is an 
opportunity to serve a global audience with quality statistics and 
information to ensure that our universities continue to attract good 
applicants from home and overseas.

Bernard Kingston of Mayfield University Consultants said : 
I am excited by this new development in partnership with Constable & 
Robinson. Choosing which University to attend remains one of the biggest 
decisions in an individualís life and the new site will ensure that this 
is a properly informed decision.

Full details of the site will be notified to you next month. Meanwhile, 
please contact Nova Jane Heath at Constable & Robinson 
([log in to unmask]) or Bernard Kingston at Mayfield 
([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ) for further 
information, comment or enquiries."
