Thesis Editing

Thesis Editing Services for Students

The Expert Editor is the leading thesis editing service for students in Australia and overseas.

As part of our thesis editing service, we have edited numerous honours, master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral theses and dissertations.

Hundreds of students have used us to produce high quality theses that are ready for submission. We have considerable experience in assisting students where English is their second language, and we also help many native-English speaking students too.

A thesis is such a large undertaking that any student can become “blind” to important problems with their writing. This includes spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes, language inconsistency, unclear expression and referencing style errors. A professional editor is the best person to fix these.

By using our thesis editing service, your thesis or dissertation will:

  • Meet Australian and international publication standards
  • Have no typos, language errors, confusing sentences or unclear arguments
  • Follow all academic conventions and referencing guidelines.

Why The Expert Editor is so popular

We’re a popular professional editing option for students because we provide great value and have uniquely flexible turnaround options.

Flexible turnarounds

Don’t pay more for a short turnaround time.

We realise that many Master’s and PhD students have looming deadlines for submission. Therefore, we do our best to accommodate them by not discriminating in terms of price. Students can nominate their preferred return date and our prices remain the same regardless of the turnaround time.
