Manchester Metropolitan University

Exercise and Sport

**Important information: Future of the Cheshire campus Manchester Metropolitan University has confirmed that it will be closing its Cheshire campus in the summer of 2019. We are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate exercise and sport science courses and research degrees, starting in 2018 on the Cheshire campus. Courses will only be delivered on campus until summer 2019, after this date teaching and research supervision will take place in Manchester. Our students and staff will be supported during this period to ensure that the impact on your studies is minimal. If you are interested in studying a postgraduate taught course or research degree in exercise and sport science from September 2019 onwards, information will be published on our website as soon as it is available.** Intellectually challenging and discipline-focused, the Exercise and Sport Masters programme prepares students for a career in sub-disciplines of exercise and sport at an advanced level. Underpinned by current research and practitioner expertise, an interdisciplinary perspective is encouraged. This programme is highly valued by employers and the wider exercise and sport sector with many of our graduates holding senior positions in research, Higher Education, sport and health management, sport medicine, and exercise evaluation. Opportunities for interaction across the pathways of biomechanics, physiology and psychology, coaching studies, sport development, and sports injuries are included and encouraged as appropriate. The programme is flexible in terms of structure and delivery: major and minor pathways can be chosen for a desired combination e.g. MA Exercise and Sport (Sport Development with Psychology).
