FAQs

Where do you get the data?

Our data comes from a multitude of sources. The data sources for Propella’s tools include: the Government’s data on employment and apprenticeship; Office of Students on student success; Government data (such as HESA and LEO data); we use an API from Numbeo for cost of living data; and we share The Pay Index’s professional and executive data library for real-time salary and earnings information. Some universities such as University of Cambridge and University of Oxford are missing from a couple of the reports, as data from the Office for Students requires over 50% of a student body to return survey results for it to be included both these universities did not reach the threshold.  Where possible we have incorporated data from complementary sources.

How often is the tool updated?

There are several different reputable sources that we collate within Propella, generating over 2 milllion unique pieces of data. We use these sources to update our tool as regularly as new data is released, usually every quarter but some of our reports are updated daily or weekly.
