The Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) of University of Oxford invites applications for the 2014 Recanati-Kaplan Centre Postgraduate Diploma in International Wildlife Conservation Practice. The full time, seven month residential course runs from March to September each year, and is preceded by one month of distance learning. Designed specifically with the needs of conservation practitioners in mind, the emphasis is on equipping students with the practical skills and theoretical understanding required to contribute effectively to conservation research and action in the developing world. The diploma course is suitable for those already working in conservation, and also for recent graduates, provided they have gained field experience prior to or during the course of their first degree. A degree in an appropriate natural science is required, but in exceptional cases candidates with demonstrated equivalent experience in field-based conservation and aptitude for postgraduate level studies may be accepted. Applications are particularly welcomed from early-career field conservationists from developing nations, for whom sponsorship is possible. Candidates without field conservation experience interested in a career change will not be considered as priority candidates.
The application deadline for the 2014 course is Friday, June 14, 2013.For more information on the course curriculum, the background of past and current students and how to apply, please visit the diploma website (www.wildcru.org/diploma).
