Proofreading Services for Students

Get Started

At Proof Master, we provide our range of proofreading services for students that want to ensure their future career goals are not in any way hindered by the quality of their written work. Beyond the short term goal of achieving good grades, you may be concerned about the effect poor results can have on your future career aspirations.

Whilst studying properly to have the right knowledge is always the first step towards guaranteeing academic success, boosting the quality of your written work is also essential and can hold you further back then you deserve to be. Simply making clear what you are trying to say or demonstrate can bring up your grades to reflect the amount of studying that you have put in.

Lacking confidence in your written work is certainly not uncommon at university, especially when you feel as though you are adept in your subject area. Our proofreading services for students are there to identify any issues that might be present in your writing, such as its clarity of communication, academic tone of voice, style, or flow. Working side-by-side with professional proofreaders for your thesis, essay, or dissertation can quickly stop the same flaws from occurring and instil confidence in your writing ability.

What are the Main Available Proofreading Services for Students?

Aside from professional proofreading that fundamentally centres around grammar, spelling, punctuation and typo corrections, students also utilise the following editing services that are also commonly referred to as proofreading:

Enhanced Editingenhanced editing

This service is useful if you feel that you have a clear grasp of the subject’s required philosophies, observations and ideas but that you could be communicating more clearly or concisely. Of our available proofreading services for students, this option is useful for quickly making your work more impactful without extensive topic revision. Enhanced essay editing, dissertation editing and thesis editing, boost academic strength by improving the quality of written English; rewording for clarity and impact, along with reordering sentences for better flow.

paraphrasing and rewritingParaphrasing and Rewriting

Both of these proofreading services result in a well-presented, high calibre piece of written work that perfectly communicates your astute thoughts. The first of these proofreading services for students, paraphrasing, is there to rephrase source text so that it is unique. If your ideas are clouded by waffle with your key messages hidden away, our rewriting service will bring everything you want to say to the fore. Naturally the essence of your work will be identified, understood and preserved, but the way it is presented will be polished to perfection.

Essay Critiqueessay critique

You’ve completed your essay, but you know there is something not quite right. It may be that your essay lacks impact or that there are inconsistencies within its argument. Even if you are unsure of what is wrong with it, a fresh pair of eyes can provide some needed criticism that you can take on board. With a professional proofreading company, an essay critique service will cover everything from the style and relevancy of your references, to the clarity of arguments, themselves. This service is perfect for if you are looking for in-depth insights into the quality of your writing and where it can be improved for future consistency in your academic career.

What is proofreading?

Proofreading involves the correction of any spelling, grammatical, punctuation or typographical errors in a piece of written work. A proofread service provided by a professional editor will pick up things like incorrect use of similar words, going way beyond what any computer spell-checker will ever be able to do.

Some proofreaders, such as the highly experienced experts at Proof Master, will take the proofread service a step further by making smart vocabulary swaps and suggesting changes to help improve the clarity of your written messages. The result is a piece of work that effectively demonstrates your own expertise through more impactful, academically sound language and delivery.

What qualifications should proofreaders have?

Proofreaders who specialise in proofreading and editing academic work should ideally be qualified to Master’s level so that they have the knowledge and understanding of the specific demands made by university markers. At Proof Master for example, all our strictly screened editors are minimum Master’s qualified, although many have PhDs or are teachers or lecturers. This puts them in the very best position possible to guide students in obtaining the grades they need and desire.

It is important to be aware that not all proofreaders come from an academic background; some are experienced commercial or technical writers, editors or tutors. Others may not have the specific knowledge required to understand your particular subject well enough to advise you on the best way to deliver your work. Therefore always be sure to look for relevant qualifications and experience when seeking suitable proofreaders.

What are the benefits of using a proofread service as a student?

Lots of students – both native English speaking and those with English as a second language – find that they lack confidence in the quality of their written work. This may be because work has been returned for reworking or because grades are not as expected.

Most students really do know their subject inside out; it is just that when it comes to communicating it in the style demanded by university markers, they fall at that hurdle.

By using a professional proofread service, students can focus more on setting down their thoughts and analysing their subject matter and less on worrying about getting their spelling and grammar spot-on, or ensuring they are using the right vocabulary.

Am I allowed to use proofreading services as a student?

Universities all have their own individual policies on the use of proofreading services. These are usually published on the university’s website and will outline what you are and are not allowed to do concerning the use of professional proofreaders. The rules do not usually forbid the use of a third party proofread service, but they will set parameters for you to follow, so be sure you are aware of what they are and that any proofreading service you use is compliant with them.

At Proof Master, all our proofreading and editing services are compliant with university rules. Most of our academic editors are lecturers or tutors themselves which means they are acutely aware of university policy. If you require, we can provide you with a third party proofreading certificate that shows our service meets your university’s guidelines.
