Trusted by students and academics in over 50 countries

We offer a range of academic proofreading services for academics and students around the UK and over 50 countries worldwide including India, the UAE, Taiwan, France, China and Germany.

Save time, get better marks

Our service is consistently rated as one of the leading academic editing and proofreading services in the UK, this is largely due to the fact that we use two UK native English proofreaders on every document. This helps us maintain the quality of service that we are famous for. We are the only company in the UK to offer this unique service.

How our academic proofreading service works

We edit all types of academic papers to the highest standards. Your document is sent to the first proofreader who goes through it in detail, looking for errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure. When they have completed a first edit the document is then sent to the second proofreader, a quality control expert, who goes through the document again to consolidate what the first proofreader has done. Both proofreaders use the “track changes” feature in Word to highlight errors and to write comments.
