The second year Master's program in Synthesis, Catalysis, and Sustainable Chemistry at the Universite Claude Bernard Lyon 1 is an intensive, high-level MS program taught entirely in English, intended primarily for English speaking international students.
The program is extremely dense, with 10 courses in the fall, and a research internship in the spring. The internship can be done in any of the several hundred world-renown academic and industrial research groups in the Lyon area, but also throughout France and abroad.
The program is a research-oriented program, and the majority of students go on to a PhD program in Lyon, in France, or abroad. Nonetheless, it is also an excellent program for those wanting to go on directly to an industrial position.
