TESTIMONIALS

"IMI has prepared me to succeed during my internship."

Helge De Wilt

from Netherlands

At IMI I am studying what I enjoy doing the most: Hospitality. One of the many things I have learned is how to provide my guests with an excellent service. IMI has prepared me to succeed during my internship. In a small school like IMI you will get to know everyone really fast from all over the world. My friends here at IMI are connections for a lifetime; having good connections in this industry is extremely useful.

In my Certificate semester, I was surprised that I had been awarded the Merit Scholarship for best overall scores for that semester – this was a good feeling (especially for my parents) and meant I was awarded a discount in tuition fees for my next semester of study!
