The University of Southampton

4. Summer School Programme


The course consists of twenty 40 min lectures/workshops and five 4 hr experiments. Morning and afternoon breaks for tea & coffee are included in the programme. The course offers plenty of opportunities to discuss any electrochemical problems with members of the Southampton Group. The experiments are usually carried out in groups of two or three with a demonstrator to show you the instrumentation and to discuss both the design of the experiment and the interpretation of the results.

The provisional programme for the 2018 Electrochemistry Summer School is given below:
