The Recanati-Kaplan Centre Postgraduate Diploma in International Wildlife Conservation Practice is an eight-month full-time course (of which one month is distance learning) focusing on the global dimensions of wildlife conservation, and the survey and analysis methods commonly used in the study of terrestrial mammals. The course is based at the University of Oxford, in the U.K. 

The course is intended for early-career conservationists, working with government agencies or NGOs, or recent graduates with considerable field experience, particularly in developing nations.



A grant by the founder of the Panthera Foundation (Dr Thomas Kaplan) provides for the sponsorship of candidates from the developing world. Depending on the amount of their own or third-party funding secured by candidates, applications can be made for any or all of the following costs:

Course fees

International travel to and from the U.K.


Living expenses for the duration of the course

Please visit the WildCRU website for further details regarding the financial support available through the Recanati-Kaplan WilldCRU Scholarships.

Deadline: 11 June, 2021



The diploma is suitable for those already working in conservation and also for recent graduates, provided they have gained field experience during the course of their first degree. Although a degree in an appropriate natural science is normally required, the program may make an exception if the applicant can demonstrate equivalent accomplishment and aptitude for field-based conservation, and the potential to study at postgraduate level.
