Academic Proofreading & Editing Services

Oxbridge Proofreading® – The UK’s Most Trusted Academic Proofreading & Editing Service.

Specialist Proofreading & Editing of Essays, Dissertations, Theses and Publishable Papers.


Tailor-made for you.

The type of editorial assistance required may vary, so we offer a choice of three services to meet your individual needs. All our editors hold elite academic qualifications and all work is checked by a senior editor with qualifications from the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge. We will aim to match your work with a specialist in your subject area.

Academic Proofreading

Academic Proofreading

Reviews your spelling, punctuation and grammar to pick up all the small errors you may have missed.

A thorough and detail-focused review of your manuscript to identify errors in English spelling, punctuation, grammar and typography. Designed as an invaluable final check for those whose writing is already at a high standard.


Stylistic Proofreading

Stylistic Proofreading & Editing

A language-focused review to ensure that your writing is clear, concise, coherent and in a correct academic style and tone.

In addition to all the features of standard Proofreading, we check to ensure that you have expressed your thoughts and ideas in an understandable and easy-to-follow manner. This includes making sure that your use of terminology and word choice is correct and consistent, that there is a natural and logical flow to your writing, and that you are following academic conventions and guidelines.


Dissertation Proofreading

Dissertation Proofreading & Editing

Our dissertation proofreading & editing service reviews the finer details of English language that allow you to confidently express your academic competence.

Four stage process

  1. Dissertation Matching: Your manuscript is assigned to a subject specialist editor.
  2. Dissertation Proofreading, Editing and Formatting: Your editor focusses on the key aspects of your service, without changing meaning or altering content, track changing all suggestions.
  3. Quality Check: Once your dissertation has been proofread, a senior editor performs a final check before returning your manuscript.
  4. Review: Upon receipt of your dissertation, you review the track changes and get back in touch with your editor should there be anything you are unsure of.


All reviews are shown using ‘track changes’, without changing meaning or altering ideas, allowing you to maintain complete control of your text.

Thank you for getting my thesis back to me so promptly.

The improvements are great and I have read through them all in the track changes document.

The additional comments for my consideration were very helpful and reassured me my that the editor knew my subject and what they were doing.

Thanks again.
