How Much Does Dissertation Coaching Cost?

Est. Reading: 2 minutes

You can expect to pay anything from $800 to $4000 per semester in dissertation coaching costs, depending on the level of service and the expertise of the coach.

Expensive? Well, that depends.

Dissertation coaching is an investment. While the upfront cost might feel steep, it is paltry when you consider what you are getting and the costs it can help you avoid.

A Degree is Worth Nothing if You Never Finish

It is important to weigh the cost of dissertation coaching against the greater expense of delayed graduation or dropping out.

A PhD coach’s first and foremost priority is to help you cross the dissertation finishing line, so that you don’t end up wasting your time, effort, and money by sticking at ABD – or worse, failing to finish altogether.

When you are spending thousands of dollars in tuition costs and related expenses, it is worth investing a little bit more to ensure that money is not wasted. If this is an idea that appeals to you, it’s worth signing up for a free consultation session to find out more.

Health and Sanity are Priceless

Working with a dissertation coach will help you stay on track and motivated, produce top-quality writing and research, and soar through your defense with minimal stress.

Best of all, you are your coach’s number one priority, so your coach will always be invested in providing you with inspiration and moral support.

This is important, because not all supervisors have the time and resources to provide this level of support to their students consistently.

What does this mean? It means that investing in coaching is an investment is confidence, peace of mind, and lower levels of stress. It’s cheaper than a semester’s worth of spa days and better for you than whiskey.

Affordable Alternatives to Coaching

If coaching is beyond your current financial reach, there are also other options for dissertation help and dissertation tutoring.

First and foremost, check out the services offered by your institution. From writing studios and career advisors to in-house tutors, most institutions provide some support free of charge to enrolled students.

You can also hire a coach for only a specific and limited need, such as dissertation manuscript editing, help with formatting, or advice on academic careers.
