Our research degrees give you the freedom to investigate a cutting-edge topic in depth, amongst leading researchers with truly first-class facilities.

Each year we recruit approximately 25 students for higher degrees. Our postgraduate degrees are based on independent full-time research work, with an academic supervisor to guide you in discovering new and exciting areas of catalysis.



We also host the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Catalysis which has at least 12 funded places available each year. Duration is 4.5 years, leading to an MRes qualification after one year, and eventually a PhD.
