UK Essays is a Nottingham based academic writing service. Their target audiences are students in the United States, the UK, and Australia. We have been asked to write a review of this company and their services. In order to do so, we have taken the following steps:

  • Reviewed the full website content, including products and services, information about the writers, testimonials, writing samples, pricing, and benefits
  • Compared UKEssays prices with other comparable writing services
  • Communicated with customer service staff members
  • Read UKEssays customers reviews on other review websites and social media

Our goal is always the same – to provide our users with the best information possible so that they may choose a trusted and reliable writing agency to meet their needs.

The following UK Essays review is the result of these efforts. If you are considering using this company for academic writing help, please continue reading. It is our hope that our UKEssays.com review will be helpful to you.

Services and Features Available

The company offers a standard variety of academic writing services. These include essays, reports, presentations, thesis and dissertation work, application essays, marking and proofreading, coursework, etc. American students might be a bit put off, because many of the services offered and the descriptions of them are solidly geared towards a UK based audience. Perhaps a bit of explanation or a separate section for services offered to US students would have been better.

There is also a link to “free resources” that includes sample essays and guides for writing a variety of essays and papers. While they are a bit “thin” in content, they can nevertheless provide some support for students as they begin the process of learning to write on their own.

It is important to note here that the academic services offered by UKEssays are limited to undergraduate and graduate student needs. High school students should not try to use this company. 

Pricing System and Discounts

Probably the biggest shock for students, when they use UKEssays, is the pricing. One student told us that he ordered an economics essay of 1250 words – approximately 5 pages in length. He knew he would pay more because his goal was an “A,” and the company does charge more based upon the desired mark or grade. His deadline was 14 days. The final price? A whopping $435.00.

Obviously, this pricing is well beyond the budgets of most students and even for major graduate-level works with urgent deadlines.
 
Because the prices were so outrageous, we thought that there surely must be some decent UKEssays.com discounts. We were unable to find any reference to discounts on the website. There were no UK essay promo codes.

Security Level and Payment Methods

Payment methods are via major credit and debit cards and PayPal. The company uses a third-party SSL-certified processor which means that financial information is secured and not held by the UKEssays staff. Customers can feel fully safe providing their card information.

Another major aspect of security is privacy and confidentiality for customers. These are guaranteed through clear policies, and customers do state that they are happy with the protection of their identities.

Writer Expertise and Delivery

All customers stated that they received their orders on time. However, most feedback and comments that have been posted off-site or submitted to us have the same issues:

  • Quality of writing is not worth the price. In one instance, the customer who requested an “A” level paper stated that it was not expertly written but one that an average student could have produced.
  • Many customers were not happy with the quality of resources, stating they were not primary, were often a-few-to-several-years old, and would not meet the expectations of most professors.
  • Customers did state that they could request revisions that were completed but that they did not often improve the piece enough to warrant the price being charged. In fact, getting a refund seems to be difficult, as the company continues to insist upon more revisions.

Additional Benefits

There is a lot of additional free content on the website. The samples do reflect good scholarly writing, but actual delivered products do not always. As stated, the guides are good for beginner writers but do not provide the assistance that college and graduate students need to produce their own pieces.

Conclusion

Here is the bottom line with UK Essays. It is certainly a legal service that accepts orders, completes them, and delivers them on time. The negatives are quite clear. Pricing is exorbitant for the industry ($86 per page for a short research paper with a 14-day deadline); the quality of writing and resources does not warrant the high price tag. And there is also concern about the ease with which people can get refunds, despite the pledge of 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.

If you are looking for a professional writing service that can offer high-quality products at an affordable price, then UK Essays is not for you. There are plenty of other companies that will serve you well.

Alister: "I feel this is a scam."

"I doubt it’s a UK-based service. I remember discussing stuff about the order with a support agent and I clearly heard remarks in some foreign language in the background. I also ordered a UK writer, but their messages in the chat and the paper were US-spelt. I feel this is a scam."

Annika: "Very poor standards"

"Very disappointed with the quality of work. Very poor standards. I am not going to go into details as I have spent approximately an hour on the phone with the manager hoping to get somewhere but that didn't do much. I have ordered Diploma Report - level pass, however I was told I should have ordered PHD for the quality of work I expect. I do study for the Diploma HND/HNC. Sad. They have deleted my review on their website. I have also noticed how in all their bad reviews replies UK Essays try to justify themselves or downgrade their poor standards. I have also asked an Academic to go over the essay I bought and was told this would have never got a chance of passing."

Sarah: "Be weary"

"Please be weary of this company. They have covered themselves on all fronts in their terms and conditions. I recently paid nearly £400 for an essay, which completely failed! When I contacted them to inform them that not only has it failed but it had further financial loss to me, as I had to pay to repeat the module, they were not concerned in the slightest! What an awful way to deal with desperate students! Anyway, they asked to send through a PDF of the university comments etc to account for why it failed, so I did that. A few days later they get back to me saying their ""reviewer"" has had a look through and they were not convinced with the university's comments and that not only should the essay not have failed but also achieved a 2.1 (which is what I paid for). So I was reasonable, asking what else can I provide you with to prove that the university markers failed it (usually two markers), they said nothing! Then when I asked for compensation, they said their terms and condition states you are not supposed to submit the work as it is, you should use it only as a guide, so they were not responsible for my failure. However, a part of the submission I changed myself, and they turned around and said oh yeah that failed because you changed it, so they were not accountable to changes made. So this company has itself covered with its terms and conditions, so when you pay for your essays you need to know it is a huge risk. Their writers are not all experts and it is likely yours might fail just like mine did. On top of that, they offer not resolutions or compensation for selling me something that did not meet the expectation. Also, more importantly, it seems like a tightly run family business as well, because when I asked to escalate the matter to someone senior, the woman OLIVIA, was offended, saying she was senior and there was basically no one else I can talk to about it. They then offered me a 20% voucher to use on their site, but why on earth would I use their site again?!!! To pay more and fail again? When I refused and insisted a full refund they shut down my account!!! Please everyone, be careful of this company! Might be better to get help from people you know face to face who won't scam you like UK Essays did to me."
