“Accepted to Masters program”

“Cambridge Proofreading helped check through my Statement of Purpose and I have since been accepted on to the master’s degree that I applied for. I am so glad that I sent my statement to be checked as the editor picked up on many errors that I had originally overlooked. ”
Isabel, UT Austin

“Timely, quality service”

“The hand in date for my dissertation was very close and I was beginning to worry about finishing my final checks in time. I sent my work to Cambridge for proofreading on short notice. They returned my work on deadline as promised and they managed to pick apart my paper in close detail.”
Zaide, University of London

“APA editing”

“As part of our assignment brief we had to use APA style. I had not used this style before and was not very confident so I sent my essay to Cambridge Proofreading. Jo helped check the APA style formatting was all presented correctly and now I feel very reassured. Thank you!”
Derik, Toronto, Canada
