The Cambridge Masters in Conservation Leadership 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 ten leading conservation organisations, which together comprise the Cambridge Conservation Initiative. The Masters in Conservation Leadership is designed for applicants with at least three years of relevant professional experience and clear leadership potential.

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. The course is based in the David Attenborough Building, offering students outstanding facilities and access to world-leading conservation practitioners and researchers.

Graduates join a global alumni network from over 85 countries who receive ongoing support. Alumni are already making a global impact for conservation.


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,

The closing date for applications is 5 December 2023
