For many students, the thesis marks the last important milestone before you successfully complete your studies. Even if writing a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral thesis usually does not have a significant influence on the final overall grade of the course of study, many prospective graduates still want to put in a good performance. Many students therefore wonder whether a lecturer is worthwhile.

As a symbolic end to the study, the thesis is often of great importance. Not only do she follow many important steps, such as the graduation ceremony, the ceremonial handing over of the diploma, but it is often also used as a business card in the search for a job. Finally, your work shows how you express yourself, how well you explain and how efficiently you can work independently.

What is a proofreader?

The editor is to review, customize, and improve a text in terms of aspects such as content or writing style. This includes, for example, the repair of spelling, punctuation, and grammar. At the same time, however, the text is also checked for its meaning and completeness. This allows the thesis to be given a common thread that guides the reader through the topic in a more targeted manner and makes explanations clear enough.

An editor is carried out by an external person who best has a professional background for improving the content of texts by maintaining and ensuring the individual style of the author despite correction.

Do I need a proofreading for my thesis?

Therefore, in order to leave a positive impression on the supervisor and possibly the potential employer, it is particularly important that you present an excellent copy of your thesis. This should not only be error-free, but also easy to understand and worked out to the point. However, because students often write thesis over a longer period of time, regularly revise and adapt text passages or chapters, you as a writer quickly lose track. Spelling or punctuation errors are simply overlooked when reading repeatedly. Or you have developed such an understanding of your subject that you no longer do it sufficiently in your thesis. You lose sight of what is important without realizing it.

A mistake that can cost you not only a good grade, but perhaps also your dream job. You can use a proofreading, on the other hand, to ensure that you do not make such mistakes.

Benefits of a proofreading

The following advantages result in particular from the use of a proofreading:

  • comprehensive linguistic verification of expression, spelling and writing style
  • Avoidance of too frequent word repetitions
  • Ensuring a red thread and optimal reading flow
  • Ensuring the traceability of the topic
  • Review of sources and references
  • Enhance work through the objectivity of an external reader


As you can see, the use of a proofreading certificate has its value. Not only can you avoid volatility errors or word repetitions in this way. You can also benefit from the objectivity of a second reader, who shows you where your thesis has optimization potential. This can greatly enhance your work linguistically and therefore lead to a better grade.

Gibt es noch Fragen?

Falls es noch Fragen gibt, habe ich zwei Tipps. Ich habe meine Erfahrung aus 5 Jahren in der Betreuung von Abschlussarbeiten im Buch: "Empfehlungen für die Bachelor- und Masterarbeit" zusammengefasst. Dieses gibt es bei Springer und Amazon seit August 2020. Das Buch ist ein offzielles Fachbuch in kann damit zitiert werden. Weiterhin können Sie mich gerne mal anrufen. Hierzu einfach im Buchungssystem nach einen freien Termin schauen. Ich nehme mir jeden Monat einige Stunden Zeit um Studenten zu helfen.

Mein Tipp vor der Abgabe Ihrer Abschlussarbeit

Es lohnt sich immer eine Abschlussarbeit professionell Korrekturlesen oder auf Plagiat prüfen zu lassen. Der Vorteil ist, dass Sie dabei auch Feedback erhalten und den akademischen Sprachstil verbessern. Anbieter wie bspw. Scribbr helfen mit guten Preisen bei der Abschlussarbeit.

Genderhinweis: Ich habe zur leichteren Lesbarkeit die männliche Form verwendet. Sofern keine explizite Unterscheidung getroffen wird, sind daher stets sowohl Frauen, Diverse als auch Männer sowie Menschen jeder Herkunft und Nation gemeint. Lesen Sie mehr dazu.
