Oxbridge Proofreading® has been providing students and academics at Oxford and Cambridge with proofreading services for many years.
But we also work with students and academics from nearly every other UK University, as well as academic institutions from all over the globe. In this digital age, our services have become more and more accessible, and the number of students who are able to reach out for our help has increased beyond measure.
Our reputation for providing excellent academic proofreading has steadily increased and, along with it, our reach. Through word-of-mouth from satisfied customers (and the undeniable power of the internet) we now provide academic proofreading to students and academics from every corner of the globe.
Despite this reputation and many recommendations, we are aware that there are still some concerns for new clients to overcome when considering the use of a professional academic proofreading service. So we’ve provided some answers to the most common questions.
Oxbridge Proofreading® helps to improve your academic English. Our professional and highly regarded proofreading service will review your spelling, punctuation and grammar. When you’ve been close to a document for days, months, sometimes years, you can become blind to mistakes. Our eyes will often read what our brain tells them to. And if the words are already familiar, because you have written them – your brain will automatically skim across the article. You will not always see your own errors.
For Master’s students: your academic supervisors and second markers will expect to understand your thoughts and arguments clearly, and on first reading. Therefore, the professional and highly qualified team at Oxbridge Proofreading® helps you to identify errors before submitting your work.
We help PhD candidates to present their research with greater clarity. One of our most popular services is our Dissertation/Thesis Proofreading & Editing Service. As a PhD candidate, don’t be tempted to settle for your first draft! It’s important in thesis writing not to let word fatigue and the desperation for it all to be finished mean that you cut corners. When we work on a thesis, we work with you until the end – through amendments and including post-viva support, and all within the agreed fee.
We want you to fulfil your ambitions and succeed in the future you deserve and desire. So we do not take our responsibility in that process lightly, which is why we only work with the best editors and proofreaders.
The editor that Oxbridge Proofreading® assigns to your work will hold a minimum of a Master’s degree from either the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge, or one of the UK’s other elite universities. Proofreading team members are subject specialists, and are current and relevant to today’s academia.
A reputable company will enforce a set of values that drive all their decisions. For us, those values must be customer-centric, but also fall within your university’s guidelines.
We guarantee that at Oxbridge Proofreading®, our customers come first. Our editors thrive on honesty and integrity and knowing limitations; therefore we won’t accept an order if the work is not the author’s own, and/or the scope of the request is not within ethical limits.
Hopefully, we’ve answered any questions or misconceptions you may have.
Additionally, if you feel you need additional support with the content of your work before getting to the editing and proofreading stage, we highly recommend speaking with your tutor/supervisor. Don’t be tempted to seek outside help when it comes to content issues – your supervisors are there to help, and although they may be very busy, they will always try to offer support when and where they can.
So whether your work is for a thesis, essay, journal article or conference paper, perfection is what you should be aiming for. Your passion for succeeding and our proofreading expertise will work collaboratively to take you one step closer to your goal.
To help you decide whether we can indeed support you, give us a call/email us. Have you considered our ‘try before you buy’ option? All that’s required is for you to send us a sample of your work, along with some details about yourself, and we will edit a small, randomly chosen, section for FREE and return to you within a couple of days. If you don’t have time to wait for a sample edit, you can read Reviews from some of our previous clients.
You will see for yourself how a professional proofread can take away added stress and increase your chances of a bright future.
