Can I get a free membership?

Developing, maintaining and promoting a site like FindSupervisors to students, supervisors and service providers costs a lot of money and is very time consuming
We have a very transparent business model. We don’t sell or handover any of your information to third parties. We, therefore, can’t afford to give free memberships.
In return, we do not charge any commission on any agreements

How do I find the right supervisor?

We ask the supervisors to be very specific about what they are offering and describe as detailed as possible how they prefer to work together with the students. We also encourage them to state upfront how much they charge and when the student has to pay.
So start by searching for topics you need covered and get into a dialogue with the dissertation supervisors you find interesting.

It is equally important that you as a student make your listing as precise as possible so that interested supervisors and service providers can contact you directly as well.

The student hasn't paid me as agreed, what shall I do?

It is always sad when a client isn’t paying. We can’t take any responsibility for the commercial agreement you make with the student. But we can recommend procedures so that everybody remains satisfied.
Our recommendation is to agree on small monthly payments instead of a lump sum. You won’t start next month’s counselling until the previous month has been paid.
If the student does need to pay a larger lump sum we recommend using an escrow service so that the money is blocked until a particular condition is met.
