*Please note that we will endeavor to proofread all MA theses, but undergraduate students have priority. Since there is a limit to the number of documents that can be proofread by our proofreaders, during busy periods, we may be unable to accept MA theses.

  • We only proofread documents written in English.
  • We only proofread senior theses and MA theses to be submitted to International Christian University.
  • The maximum number of pages that we are able to check per slot is 5 pages (maximum 1,500 words). Please use the ICU senior thesis format. You will need to book a separate slot for every 5 pages that you would like to have proofread.
  • We encourage you to submit the entire chapter that contains the 5 pages that you would like to have proofread as this will provide the proofreader with some context. You will be asked to specify which 5 pages you would like to have proofread when you submit your document for proofreading.
  • Please note that we do not proofread bibliographies.
  • Please use Grammarly to check your document before you submit your document for proofreading.
  • Please submit a Word document wherever possible. If that is difficult, we are also able to accept PDF files.
