Exercise and Sport (Physiology)

**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, this programme prepares you for a career within your chosen sub-discipline of exercise and sport at an advanced level. Opportunities for interaction across biomechanics, physiology and psychology, coaching studies, sport development and sports injury are included. The programme is flexible: major or minor in chosen subjects for your desired combinations, e.g. MSc Exercise and Sport (Physiology with Biomechanics).
