Catalysis lies at the heart of many chemical processes, from the academic research lab through living systems to the industrial large-scale reactor. By understanding and careful use of catalysis many processes can be made faster, cleaner and more sustainable. This course will provide training in the state-of-the-art of catalysis theory, application, preparation and analysis and is recommended for graduates in chemistry or chemical engineering wishing to pursue a career in academia or industry.

Special Features

  • Provides the opportunity for students to undertake a short research project applying the skills acquired through the taught modules.

Course Description

The course will develop students’ understanding of the science behind a range of problems arising in catalysis and for students to engage with a range of modern catalytic equipment and techniques. This course will train students in three delineated branches of catalysis (heterogeneous, homogeneous and biological), as well as providing the opportunity to undertake a more theoretical or computational approach to the subject. In the later part of the taught part of the programmes students can focus in the specialist area that excites them the most and then undertake a research project with one of our world leading research groups. Many of our current PhD students are graduates of the MSc in catalysis.

Career Prospects

The course will allow students to enter the employment sphere of catalytic research or industry having gained an in depth education and training programme in homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalytic chemical processes and applications.

Available Modules

  • Preparation and Evaluation of Heterogeneous Catalysts
  • Mechanism and Ligand Design in Homogeneous Catalysis
  • Biocatalysis I: Modern Approaches to Biocatalysts
  • Biocatalysis II: Industrial Applications of Biocatalysis
  • Homogeneous Catalysis in Industry
  • Practical Catalytic Chemistry

Skills Acquired

Students will develop key skills including learning skills, information handling and presentational skills, all which can be easily applied to industrial and academic working environments,

The course is suitable for graduates with a 1st or 2nd class UK Honours degree, or equivalent in chemistry or a related discipline eg. chemical engineering, physics, pharmacy, pharmacology and biochemistry.Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to pass either IELTS/TOEFL exams.Note: International students pursuing part-time programmes of study are not eligible for Tier 4 (General Student) visas and must have alternative leave to remain in the UK if they intend to study at the University in person. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever. 75 (Grade B) TOEFL paper-based test score : 600 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Studentships are available (for UK/EU students only) to cover tuition fees and include a maintenance stipend.
