The University of Chester welcomes students to undertake research towards MPhil and PhD in Sport and Exercise Sciences. This is an exciting department with an eager and innovative research base.

The Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences (SES) divides its research into two distinct groups - the Sociology of Sport and Exercise and Applied Sport and Exercise Science. With over 80% of Department staff submitted, Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 results identified a 20% improvement on research rating from RAE2008 and a proportion of our research remaining as world-leading/internationally excellent. The applied nature of the Department’s research and its impact on informing sporting practice was recognised as internationally excellent.

The Department provides a resource room and a regular Research Seminar Programme to support postgraduate research students as standard. The Department has well qualified, research-active staff who are committed to nurturing the strong and energetic research culture they have developed over the last decade. In addition, the Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences has strong links with many UK and European Universities, whereby staff and postgraduate students can participate in intensive collaborative exchanges should they wish. The Department also has strong research links with several external partners, including, Active Cheshire, The Rugby Football League, the England Touch Association, The Rugby Football Union, St Helens Rugby League Club, Warrington Wolves Rugby League Club, England Handball Association, The English Institute of Sport, GB cycling, GB squash, GB water polo, GB swimming and GB Taekwondo.
