The Cambridge Masters in Conservation Leadership is now accepting applications!

The program is a ground-breaking course that equips students with the applied leadership and management skills needed to create positive change in conservation. A unique feature of the course is its delivery by a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and nine leading conservation organisations, which together comprise the Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

The curriculum combines taught modules with hands-on experiential learning through a group consultancy and an individual professional placement hosted by a conservation organisation. All students receive 1:1 mentoring from a senior leader.

Graduates join a global alumni network from over 70 countries who receive ongoing support. Alumni are already making a global impact for conservation.

To be eligible the applicants must have

  • minimum of 3-5 years of applied experience
  • good first degree
  • strong English language skills
  • clear leadership potential


The full Miriam Rothschild Scholarships in Conservation Leadership, and a number of other scholarships, are available to support students attending the Masters in Conservation Leadership. Successful applicants for scholarships will have outstanding conservation leadership potential, but be unable to fund their studies from other sources. Particular priority for scholarships will be given to those from countries rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources. Various other awards are available through sources such as the Cambridge Trusts.

There is no longer any fee for making an application for students from the least developed countries.
Please check the website for updates. If you have any queries about making an application, please contact the Programme Administrator,
