Whether your ambition is to help an athlete smash world records, or improve the quality of life for recovering patients, we can give you the tools to achieve it.

Our sport and exercise science degrees cover a broad spectrum of themes across sports and health. Here, you will gain an understanding of the key disciplines of biomechanics, physiology, and psychology. Building on these foundations, you’ll develop specialist skills and knowledge according to your strengths and interests. You'll also have the opportunity to spend an extra year expanding your horizons, working on a placement in the industry.

Study sport and exercise science at Manchester Met and you’ll have the support of our team of accredited sports scientists and experts who work with business, the NHS, government and international athletes. With our network of local sports organisations and health providers, you’ll have plenty of great opportunities to apply your knowledge and secure work placements.

What’s more, in our new £26m Institute of Sport building, you will have access to the latest technologies and world-class facilities, including human performance laboratories, a state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner and an environmental chamber that simulates extreme temperatures and altitudes.

This course is also available with a foundation year.
