'The course was a dream course in terms of its curriculum of applied conservation skills, ranging from field techniques to statistics (a very crucial part of wildlife conservation research) and public speaking to conflict resolution.

'If I had tried to gain the same theoretical knowledge and practical skills by working my way through short-term project placements, I guess it would have taken me a 2-3 years at the least. The best thing about this course was that although I did not have a formal education in wildlife, I was eligible to apply. All you needed was evidence of proven long-term commitment in the field and hands-on experience with large mammal conservation projects.

'To others considering this programme I would say do not be discouraged by the seeming brevity of the course. There is a lot of training that can be packed in 7-8 months of intensive classes and practical. Personally, I had the experience of a lifetime, made friends from all over the world and connected with professionals working in this field for longer than I can imagine myself doing.

'If you think that you have the passion and field experience required to both benefit from and contribute to the curriculum of the postgraduate diploma, why don’t you email the coordinator with your CV to see if you would be a suitable candidate. This is how exciting stuff begins.'
