School welcomes largest intake of students
30 September 2016
The School of Chemistry would like to welcome new and returning students. This academic year the School has welcomed its largest intake of new undergraduates with 190 students admitted.
The number of scholars, undergraduate students with the highest grades at A-level, and international students has also increased.
New and returning students can look forward to studying in improved facilities; many of our lecture theatres and laboratories were given a full refurbishment over the summer months ready for our new intake. Continued investment in School and University facilities planned for this and upcoming years demonstrate our commitment to providing the best possible student experience.
The increase in students studying chemistry with us this year falls against the backdrop of a successful year for the research conducted in the School. In the past few months our successes have included a Royal Medal for Honorary Professor Sir John Meurig Thomas and an invitation to present our work into energy generation through direct conversion of methane into methanol to executives at Google’s research and development facility, Google X. This shows that our students can look forward to the best in research-led teaching during their studies with us.
Professor Rudolf Allemann, Head of School, said, “I am very pleased to welcome our new cohort of students and also those returning. Cardiff School of Chemistry continues to flourish and deliver a stimulating and engaging environment to study Chemistry. I wish all of our new and returning students every success in their study.”
