We can also help you to realize your career goals
Our education and postgraduation services include:
- English proofreading
- Academic/stylistic editing
- Private supervision
- Copywriting services (e.g., CVs, personal statements and letters of application)
This service ensures that vocabulary, spelling, grammar and punctuation, as well as the overall layout of your manuscript (e.g., consistency in abbreviations and formatting), are at their best. We use track changes and comments functionality so that you can review every amendment or suggestion.
This is ideal for any student or researcher wishing to ensure their manuscript is free of errors.
Academic/stylistic editing for students and researchers
In addition to proofreading, as described above, this service focuses on the logic, relevance and clarity of your argument, while addressing inconsistencies in the use of terminology, timelines and referencing, in order to enhance the impact of your work.
This is ideal for any student or researcher seeking help with language, style and structure in greater detail, especially if English is not your first language.
Private academic supervision
If would like to receive private academic supervision in the writing of your thesis or assignment, we are here to help.
We have experience of teaching and supervising students from Russell Group universities. This has included supporting students from undergraduate to doctoral level in the completion of theses and dissertations.
By offering these services ‘off campus’, we trust that students will feel more comfortable raising the challenges they face in relation to completing their thesis and assignments.
Please note, however, that we do not offer a thesis or assignment writing service.
Academic editing and supervision package
This package combines the full editing service with private supervision. This is particularly popular with PhD students, for whom English is not their first language, who are looking for ongoing support off campus regarding their use of language and fluency.
If you have recently graduated or are about to graduate from university, we can help you in drafting letters of formal or speculative application, personal profiles and CVs, and other content related to your job search. In the process, we will ensure you effectively express how you would add value to your future employer.
Please note: we do not write essays, proposals or other course assignments; however, we can support you via our private supervision services.

Why choose Language and Culture?
From the pure, social and applied sciences to the arts and humanities, we have the experience and the expertise to support all students and professional academics wishing to present their work to the highest possible standards.
All our academic proofreaders, editors, tutors and supervisors are PhD-educated, with over 20 years of professional experience.
We specialize in working with students and academics who are not native English speakers. Many of our clients are from Europe, East Asia, the Middle East and South America.
Our unique approach
Many providers of academic proofreading and editing services will offer to edit a page of your writing for free in order to demonstrate how they can add value.
While this may appear an attractive offer, we are not convinced it is useful to the student or the service provider.
That is why, with each assignment, we offer you the opportunity to meet – in person or via Skype, whichever is more convenient – with your proofreader or editor to discuss your objectives for your assignment. If appropriate, your proofreader or editor may suggest a post-assignment briefing to discuss the changes made.
At Language and Culture, we believe in the quality and the integrity of our work more than money. If you have been offered a quote from a similar organization, we believe we can offer you a cheaper quote in return for higher quality. As we do not work with contractors, there is no middleperson to pay. Typical terms and conditions apply to this offer.
