University Proofreading Services

In 2016 alone, Cambridge Proofreading’s experienced editors assisted over 5,000 university staff and students with their proofreading and editing needs. Our professional academic editors have a rich experience of proofreading and editing for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, academicians and  university faculty.

For students

If you do not receive significant improvements to the standard of your written English from our work we will give you a refund.

Standard university assessment guidelines state that 10-20% of marks are allocated for English writing quality. Our editors can ensure you get the most from these available marks by improving academic tone and vocabulary, as well as grammar, structure and syntax.

We abide strictly by university guidelines on proofreading and editing, and a significant percentage of our clients are referred to us by university staff and professors.

For university faculty

We guarantee that your manuscript will meet all required standards of English quality.

Our editing team has considerable experience in assisting authors and researchers to achieve publication in academic journals.

We can ensure that your manuscript is fully prepared for submission to journals and publishers with the maximum possible chances of success.

“Essay looks more professional”

“You answer emails very quickly which makes me feel relaxed knowing that I can send you my essays to edit and you will get them back to me before my deadline. You have made my essay look a lot more professional and academic.”

– Mohammed, University College London (Proofreading and editing service ordered 21/01/15).

“Good quality, fast”

“Good quality and fast service. I ordered for 40 pages (19,000 words) and got it back in 48 hours.  Within ten minutes of making my order the editor had started working on it.  They made a lot of edits and now it reads so much better. I am very pleased.”

– Chun, University of Manchester (Proofreading service ordered 17/02/15).

“Did a great job”

“I came to Cambridge Proofreading after using a different website that I was disappointed in. I have to admit I only used them as they were a bit cheaper and I really regret it. I ended up sending my paper to Cambridge and they did a great job.”
