Important information: academic review of Manchester Metropolitan University
Cheshire campus Manchester Metropolitan University
has been undertaking a review of the long-term future of academic provision at its Cheshire campus. It has now been confirmed that the University will withdraw from the Cheshire campus. This means that we expect the campus to close in the summer of 2019.
As the withdrawal from the campus will be a phased process we are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate taught courses starting in 2017 on the Cheshire campus. We also continue to welcome applications for part time postgraduate courses of two years in duration in the Exercise and Sport Science department starting in 2017. Applications for courses that are expected to take longer than two years to complete are currently on hold.

The fields of exercise and sport science are becoming increasingly specialised demanding greater levels of understanding. Alongside this movement is the need to educate postgraduate students to be critical thinkers and be ready to adapt their skills to new areas of health, exercise intervention and sports education.
The course encourages students to challenge themselves and the current knowledge and thinking within the field of exercise and sport. Students follow a common research methods training which is heavily ‘hands on’ utilising the departmental laboratories and field based techniques.
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. Underpinned by research and practitioner expertise, an interdisciplinary perspective is encouraged.
The programme is flexible: major and minor in subjects to achieve your desired combination eg MSc Exercise and Sport (Biomechanics with Physiology).
• Foundation Biomechanics
• Analysing Movement
• Modelling and Simulation
• Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods
• Applied Techniques in Exercise and Sport
• Biological and Non-biological Materials in Exercise and Sport
• Professional Skills
• Research Methods and Design
• Research Project
Full-time: Attendance at the University for two days per week from September to Easter. From Easter until completion attendance will be dependent on the research project being undertaken.
Part-time: University attendance for one day per week from September to Easter. In the second year, one day a week from September to Easter and then Easter to completion of research project as necessary.
