Students are sometimes hesitant to employ a proofreader to check their thesis or dissertation. I have looked through the policies of universities in New Zealand, and have discovered that the universities themselves expect, and even encourage, students to get people other than themselves to proofread their work. However, each university has a slightly different policy about third party proofreaders, and what they can and can’t do.
The universities whose policies I examined are: University of Waikato, University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, Victoria University of Wellington, and University of Otago.
For details of their policies refer to the following webpage on this site: Policies on Proofreading Theses.
Note well that when proofreading your work I will make sure I meet the requirements of your university or institution, whether it is in New Zealand or anywhere else. See home page for details: Professional Document Editing.
