In Catalysts in Chemistry, specialists in catalysis will help you explore our research that includes improving existing catalytic processes and solving vital issues such as life preservation and protecting the environment with cleaner new catalysts.

Cardiff University’s School of Chemistry is a world leader in the teaching and research of catalysis. It is also home to the Cardiff Catalysis Institute. Whilst studying in this School, you will cover topics such as:

• Organic, inorganic, spectroscopic & theoretical chemistry
• The integral role catalysts play in our daily lives
• Organic synthesis
• Molecular modelling
• Homogenous and heterogeneous catalysis
• Spectroscopy
• Dynamics and characterisation

In keeping with our varied research, the course content explores the varied presence and application in the chemistry of the differing types of catalyst and catalytic applications. Ranging from organic, inorganic, spectroscopic and theoretical chemistry, you will gain a thorough understanding of the integral role catalysts play in chemistry.

In addition to a valuable learning experience, you will live in City Centre accommodation, embark on two cultural trips within the UK and be invited to entertaining social events in our vibrant Welsh Capital City. This is an opportunity to experience British culture with new friends from across the globe.

Both Wales and the UK are uniquely rich in history, architecture and culture and our summer schools are sure to give you unrivalled personal, social and academic benefits which will enhance any CV or résumé.
