Manchester Metropolitan University has big ambitions for our future in sport. We work tirelessly with students, staff and the community of this great global sporting city to provide opportunities in sport, for all.

We have a rapidly developing performance programme at MMU Sport. One that is both being noticed and making an impact at BUCS, the World University Games, and within many international teams and pathways.

We have partnerships with a number of sporting National Governing bodies here in Manchester, which we are heavily investing in, so that talented student athletes have access to the very best facilities to develop their dual careers.

Our performance programme supports and nurtures talent. We support over 70 teams across more than 50 sports at our world class facilities. The performance programme develops top-class, student-centred clubs and individuals. We have a Sport Scholarship programme that supports talented student athletes and aims to make the tough journey a little easier.

As the newest addition to TASS Delivery Sites, we have a blank canvas on which to deliver best practice to those talented athletes who want to transform their academic and athletic potential, in to a reality.  We have already supported TASS athletes over a number of years for other delivery sites. We continue to grow our practitioner network who will be working with the talent of the future.

We have a long history of supporting sporting excellence at the University with our existing cohort including students such as:

  • Amy Clinton, Netball, studying Accounting & Finance
  • Jess Varnish, Cycling, studying Sport & Exercise Nutrition
  • Kadeena Cox, Para athletics and Para cycling, studying Physiotherapy
  • Mike Jones, Para Swimming, studying Business Enterprise & Marketing

We’re aiming for a top 20 finish in the BUCS rankings by 2020 and are excited to welcome athletes who will help us rise to that challenge.

TASS student athletes receiving services from the Manchester Met TDS will enjoy a refreshingly innovative and thoroughly supportive TASS experience.
