The University of Cambridge is a world-leading model of educational excellence with a reputation that spans the centuries. This long-standing status does not mean, however, that it’s an institution content to rest on its laurels. On the contrary, the university and its colleges continue to invest in the future to deliver an exceptional education to the students of today and tomorrow.

Produced by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) and St James’s House publishers The Guide to Excellence 2014 is a lively and informative mix of news, views and articles. Charting the impressive 50-year history of CUSU, the book also highlights how selected organisations from around the world are promoting best practice and inspiring new ideas.
