How reliable is unistats?Watch
Recently my course's data has improved greatly. From 65% pro. employment to 85% pro. employment, and 25% of people achieving a first class degree to 55% along with other improvements.
Now my course beats places like UCL, Bristol, Exeter and York for employment and satisfaction, all above Warwick in the league tables, which I'm suspicious about. Why has such a huge jump occurred in just a year? Did Warwick neglect to update their stats or are they manipulating data?
going from 65% to 85% employment is more significant if there's 100 graduates than if there's 20... plus the job market might just have improved.
unistats is a government site, The professional employment figure is IIRC based on telephone survey of graduates carried out by the uni - the question asked is whether you needed the degree to get your current job.
