Whether for a university application or a job application, a strong personal statement is often what separates the successful candidate from other shortlisted candidates. Through a personal statement you can add context to your employment and education history, demonstrating to the university or employer that you are an excellent candidate for the position.
We offer proofreading and copy editing services for your Personal Statements.
If you opt for the proofreading service, we will comb through your personal statement thoroughly and correct any errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation. We will also ensure that the format and layout are correct. The content of your personal statement will remain largely unchanged.
If you opt for the copy editing service, in addition to proofreading we will ensure that the content is appropriate, of a good standard and flows well. We may restructure the text, alter the format or suggest certain parts are removed or rewritten. We may also make stylistic alterations and suggest changes to the text where we feel they are necessary to improve its tone and fully achieve its intended impact. For a small additional cost we can offer a ‘final edit’ service, where you can send your personal statement back to us after making the suggested amendments for a final check.
We specialise in working with entry and graduate level clients and for these services we aim to have your personal statement edited and returned to you within 5 days. For more technical or specialised services this may be longer. We will provide you with a specific timeframe upon enquiry, and a final deadline will be agreed in writing prior to payment. We may also be able to offer an express service if you need your personal statement editing quickly.
