Why Catz?

  • St Catherine’s has a large and historic commitment to Chemistry in comparison with many other Oxford colleges, as indicated by the number of undergraduates which we admit, and the strength and depth in which Chemistry is represented amongst the tutorial staff and the Fellowship. Practically, this means that chemists at St Catherine’s are part of a community, which is unusually stimulating, both in terms of the teaching programme, and the social life within the College.
  • The College is very conveniently situated close to the University Laboratories, where University lectures and practicals are held.
  • St Catherine’s in particular takes justifiable pride in the high standards and extent of the tutorial programme which it hosts in Chemistry, to complement the University course followed by all chemists in Oxford.
  • Chemistry has a strong tradition at St Catherine’s, with three Nobel Prize winners among our Chemistry graduates.

Number of places usually available at St Catherine's: 10
