Save time, get better marks

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

We work with students in the UK and other cities globally and have a growing number of students from overseas, especially countries such as India, Malaysia and Germany.

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.

Our academic proofreading – We use two proofreaders

Our company uses two proofreaders on each and every document and we combine proofreading and editing in one price. Customer satisfaction is very important to us.
