In August 2007, Mayfield launched the guide on-line in collaboration with the publishers, Constable & Robinson. The website was re-branded in 2008 as The Complete University Guide.

The principal partner in Mayfield is Dr Bernard Kingston who is based in Sheffield, England. Please contact via email or telephone +44 (0) 114 230 5759.
