MA Exercise and Sport – Psychology


Course Description

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.

Please visit our website for the latest information on the review: http://www.cheshire.mmu.ac.uk/campusreview

Underpinned by research and practitioner expertise, an interdisciplinary perspective in encouraged. Opportunities for interaction across biomechanics, physiology and psychology, coaching studies, sport development and sports injury are included.

The course is flexible: major and minor in chosen subjects for your desired combination e.g. MA Exercise and Sport (Psychology with Biomechanics).
