English Proofreading Service For International Students

We help foreign students studying in the UK and other English speaking countries fix language issues in their academic work.  Our services can increase your marks, improve your experience of the education system, and boost your academic performance.


"After using the services of (AwardProof) I received a distinction grade for one of my assignments, and a merit grade for another. The feedback for both pieces of work was excellent, communicating about structure, clarity and style. I would not have achieved these grades without (AwardProof’s) assistance."

How Can Proofreading Help You?

If you are an international student studying at a UK university you are at a disadvantage.

Your essays, assignments, dissertations, and other work must all be in English. But if English is not your native language, you will make mistakes in your writing.


Some of these mistakes might be minor. Others could be more serious, and might cost you marks.


But penalising you because your English is not perfect is unfair.


Native-speakers may not work as hard as you. They might not do as much research. They could be less intelligent and ambitious.


But they can get better marks than you because they find it easier to get their ideas across when writing in their mother-tongue.


Our proofreading services will correct and improve your work, lifting it up to the standard of a native speaker.


Using our services can increase your marks, getting you better grades and classifications. Having your work proofread can dramatically improve your academic performance.


Don’t delay! Get your work proofread and get the marks you deserve today!

Am I Allowed To Have My Work Proofread?

YES! You are allowed to have your work proofread.

EVERY major UK university allows their students to use proofreading services.

Proofreading is NOT the same as plagiarism, since we are proofreading your own, original work.

Proofreading is NOT the same as using an essay mill, since we are not creating any new content or doing any research for you.

If you are still unsure whether you are allowed to use a proofreading service, ask your university supervisor or tutor.

At AwardProof we keep pricing simple.

Our normal rate is £25 per thousand words.

AwardProof will help you to check and amend the English language, grammar, coherence, flow and structure in your documents, ensuring that the standard of writing in them is that of a native speaker of English. We can proofread assessed presentations, assignments and dissertations, business reports, personal statements and job applications.




Am I allowed to use proofreading services?

Yes. All major UK and most international universities allow students to use proofreading services. Indeed, many university staff and tutors recommend that students for whom English is not their first language use a proofreader before submitting their work.
