Wildlife PhD Launchpad

Wildlife PhD Launchpad 

The Wildlife PhD Launchpad is a workshop for those who are thinking of doing a PhD in the future.

Led by our Founder, Dr Kayleigh Fawcett Williams, this workshop will help you get clear on whether a PhD is right for you and help you to create a road map for your PhD journey.


Is this for you?

This Workshop is for you if:

  • You've been thinking of applying for a PhD at some point in the future


  • You've been wondering if a PhD is for you


  • You've been applying for PhDs but you've not landed one yet 

If ANY of these sound like you, the Wildlife PhD Launchpad is for YOU!


Why should I sign up?

Lots of people say "I'd like to do a PhD someday" but very few people make it a reality. This can be because they don't really know if it's right for them and even if they do they often don't really know how to go about getting into one.

In this workshop, we'll help you get clear on whether a PhD is the right step for you, and help you to create a road map for getting there.

How will we help you?

In this online workshop, we will help you to get clear on:

  • If a PhD is really right for you
  • What kind of project would be the best fit for you
  • How to plan a project
  • How to find a supervisor
  • How to apply for it!

...and a whole lot more!


What You'll Get

The workshop includes:

  • Daily LIVE video training sessions
  • Daily LIVE Q&A Sessions
  • Ongoing Support from our Team and your Peers in our Private Facebook Community
  • Plus LOTS of Networking too!

All live sessions are recorded, so you'll be able to catch up later.
