Student Awards

Newly-accredited IMA members are invited to attend the 2017 IMA Student Awards, to be held during the IMA annual conference, on Monday 15 May 2017 at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel. The event will celebrate your achievement in successfully completing the IMA’s Certificate in Money Advice Practice and achieving accredited member status. This year graduates are also eligible to attend one free workshop session.

Graduates will be presented with a replica certificate and will be given an exclusive IMA pen. This is a great chance to meet and network with other graduates and IMA members.

Newly-accredited members are able to attend the following parts of the day one programme free of charge:

– 12.30pm – lunch and exhibition
– 1.30pm – Student Awards ceremony
– 2pm – workshop session
– 4pm – IMA AGM (free for all members, with registration at 3.40pm)

There will be no charge for attending the above, but you will need to book a place in advance.

If you are eligible to attend the Student Awards and would also like to attend the morning sessions, you can book a day one conference pass at a reduced cost of £60 (normally £90 for IMA members).

All members who passed a CertMAP cohort beginning in 2016 (and graduates of the October 2015 cohort who did not attend the 2016 awards) are eligible to attend and should have received an email invitation and booking form from us. If you think you are eligible but have not received this email, please contact us at

Booking forms must be submitted by 5pm on Friday 28 April 2017.
