Academic Proofreading Service

Professional Proofreading Services

Proofreading is arguably the most overlooked facet of academic composition even though its importance is beyond dispute. Proofreading is the quality control one exerts over one's own work; hence it is a reflection of the standards to which one holds oneself and, an indication of how much respect you have for your own intellectual efforts.

Having gone to all the effort to research, analyse and compose a piece of scholarly writing, conscientious students will always take that little bit of extra time to give their work a read through, a once over just to be sure everything is in order. With all things considered, while not the most glamorous undertaking, amending errors and correcting typos is one of the least demanding aspects of university work. Yet so many students, from lack of time, lack of will, or out of essay fatigue perhaps, neglect to do so. This is a great shame seeing as proofreading really can make the difference between a second and a first-class grade.

Markers will be very hesitant to award a first-class grade to an essay which, though it possesses much to commend it, is littered with typos and other clumsy mistakes. Such slapdash efforts are not acceptable at graduate level. These easily avoided blemishes are especially unpardonable in light of the numerous grammar and spell-check programs which feature in virtually every piece of word-processing software. Even the most accomplished writers catch and correct errors in the proofreading stage.  High-quality writing is always the result of a concerted process of revision, correction and final touches. Indeed, in many respects, it is within these essential concluding stages that first-rate work emerges. Without doubt, if you want to perfect your scholarly prose, proofreading is indispensable.

Of course, we all know that proofreading poses a sort of a dilemma, in that we can often become somewhat numb to our own errors and eccentricities. Having spent the best part of a month with a particular assignment, we become overfamiliar with our own work and this makes it difficult to detect issues. Here is where a fresh pair of eyes can be of the best use. It is always advisable to get a fellow student or flatmate to give your essay a read-through (offering to do the same for them).

For guaranteed results, though, you can always enlist professional proofreading and editing services. We offer a wide variety of such copy editing services, with different tiers of proofing ranging from the standard error correction, through to in-depth amendment and revision – all at a competitive and affordable price.

Using a professional writing company can take the hassle out of proofreading, giving you more time to focus on your studies. Additionally, the help of professional academics will give you the peace of mind which comes with knowing that your work will be returned in a flawless state. There is simply no need to throw away easy marks by returning an imperfect essay.

Professional academic proofreading services for university students and business professionals alike.

Many of the writers we employ at Essay Writing Service UK operate within the British educational system (lecturers, tutors, supervisors, etc.,). This experience makes them very well suited to reviewing, amending and editing work which is to be submitted at University level. 

Our student proofreading service allows you to give us your work and for us to make it as good as it can be. Perhaps spelling isn't your forte or English isn't your first language. These aspects need not mean that you lose precious marks on your essay or dissertation.

Our professional proofreaders will go through your work removing spelling mistakes, correcting grammar, working on the sentence structure and overall layout of the document.
