Who are UK essays?

As innovators in the field, we consistently develop our services to ensure that we provide you, our customers, with the best possible help to help you achieve the grade that you deserve.

How We Started

Barclay Littlewood founded the company in 2003. From Day One he instilled an aim to strive for excellence in the company. Barclay created many of the service features and introduced the list of unrivalled guarantees that have placed us firmly at the helm of the essay writing services market.

Our Writers

We use over 4,000 experts, each thoroughly vetted by our in-house quality team. This means that we can assign the most suitable expert with the right qualifications and experience to write you the best possible essay. All of our experts have obtained at least a 2:1 degree and have displayed a consistent ability to write to a 2:1 or first-class standard. That's why, when we guarantee you a standard of 2:1 or first-class (as ordered), it's a promise that you can trust.
