The Masters in Conservation Leadership at the University of Cambridge is a full-time, eleven month degree course aimed at graduates of leadership potential with at least three to five years of relevant experience in biodiversity conservation. Based in the University’s Department of Geography, a unique feature of this course is its delivery by members of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI), a partnership between six university departments and nine conservation organisations or networks based in and around Cambridge. The Masters in Conservation Leadership has a dedicated teaching room within the newly refurbished David Attenborough Building, offering our students constant access to world-leading conservation practitioners and researchers.
The Masters in Conservation Leadership focuses on issues of management and leadership. It aims to develop conservationists with enhanced awareness of the complex drivers of biodiversity loss, and the ability to act and lead effectively. The course combines taught modules with experiential learning through group consultancy and professional placement projects.
Some scholarship support is available through the Miriam Rothschild Scholarships and others, particularly to students from thos ecounties rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources.
If you have any questions about the course, please contact the Programme Administrator, Lisa Harris.
