APS Editing

Writing Made Easier! 

APS Editing started in 2022 with the aim of the program is to make editing affordable and accessible to all students. The program initially was opened to HABS students, then SCI and MED; as of January 2023 the program will be open to all HDRs across UQ's faculties and institutes. This program is funded by your Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).


If you need help with your thesis our  Academic Editors are here to help.

How does it work?

1. Simply complete the online editing submission form below and attach your Word document. You may request editing for up to 6000 words once per research quarter (RQ).

Please note, submissions are edited in order of receipt; if you require your work back by a particular deadline, please include that on a coversheet. Depending on their workload, the editors may decline submissions with imminent deadlines.

2. Once complete, the editor will email you a track-changed version of your paper.

You are responsible for reviewing these changes and comments, and incorporating them into the work.

3. Please familiarise yourself with UQ's guidance, policies and procedures relating to student integrity and misconduct before submission.
