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.


MA Exercise and Sport (Sport and Leisure History) provides a focus for research into nineteenth and twentieth century sport and leisure, and is actively engaged in employing all historical approaches, including oral history, biography, and prosopography, to uncover the individual and collective lives of the men and women involved in sporting and leisure activities.

Intellectually challenging and discipline-focused, the MA Exercise and Sport (Sport and Leisure History) programme prepares students for a career in sports history, education and socio-cultural studies at an advanced level.

Taught by leading researchers within the field of sports history, an interdisciplinary perspective is encouraged to explore the past. This programme is highly valued by employers and the wider sport and leisure community with many of our graduates holding senior positions in research, Higher Education, and advisory roles within professional sports clubs, archival collections and museums.

Students will also have access to the Sports and Leisure History Research Archive. This archive contains over 1,000 books, journals and magazines dating back to the early 19th century. Based initially on an extensive private collection, purchased from a founding member of the British Society of Sports History, the archive has been expanded to include sporting newspapers and magazines that have been digitised with the support of funding from Manchester City Football Club.
