Getting help with your dissertation does not necessarily equate to getting someone to do it for you, or cheating. It simply means having a “Go to” person or persons who can walk you through any difficulties that you may be experiencing. Rather than viewing asking for assistance as a sign of weakness or defeat, you should flip it over and see it as a sign of strength. Ultimately you have a choice – would you rather be the person that struggles on blindly and risks getting marked down? Or would you rather seek out help when you need it?
Okay, so assuming that you have opted to get professional help with your dissertation here are my top tips for students:
Of course, you should be comfortable turning to your mentors and teachers at any point. However, it does help if you make the effort to build a rapport.

Your teacher is best place because they have written several dissertations themselves during the course of their academic career.
Just like with clothes, one size doesn’t necessarily fit all. The key to getting the best possible, professional help is to break it all down and figure out what help you need. For example you may have whizzed through your introduction but may now be struggling to make your thesis resonate. Or, you might love the research element but find translating what you have discovered into something original and of merit. Rather than have someone write the whole thing for you, you may simply need someone to hold your hand and reassure you that you haven’t wandered too far from the beaten track.
Once you have figured out the above you can then turn to any of the following sources for the help and assistance that you need:
