Refer A Friend



IMI will pay alumni and clients a referral bonus valued at 10% of the price paid* by a new participant from the same organisation as the referrer. For a participant working in a different organisation we will pay the referrer 15% of the price paid*.

The referral bonus can be received as a cheque or in the form of a discount off an IMI programme, event or membership fee for the referrer or the nominee of the referrer. *Payment is made when the new participant has paid for his or her participation on their programme of choice.

The scheme is not available to individuals who make bookings with IMI on behalf of organisations (e.g. HR managers) for referring individuals who work in their organisation.

A referrer can refer up to eight participants to multiple programmes as part of the scheme.

The refer-a-friend scheme will not be available in conjunction with the Corporate Partnership scheme, the Scholarship scheme or any other schemes which may from time to time be offered by the Institute.

The scheme is available to:

  • Current students on any IMI programme including customised programmes.
  • Past participants from any IMI programme including customised programmes.
