Admission Process

1) The process starts the moment the candidate pays the €100 admission fee (this amount will be deducted from the final amount of the tuition fee, or refunded in case of non-admission). 

2) Once the payment has been made, an email will be sent to start the admission process. In order for the admission application to be successfully completed, the candidate must comply with the given instructions of the following 4 steps:

a) Fill in the form with relevant personal, academic and professional information.

b) Send the following documentation:

      • Cover letter or video. 
      • Curriculum vitae (the admissions department may subsequently request a copy of any of the qualifications).
      • Scanned copy of the ID card or passport.
      • Passport size photo (jpg format).
      • Documentary veracity agreement completed and signed.

c) Select the desired module(s).

d) Sign the General Terms and Conditions.

 3) Conduct a personal interview with the Academic Board of the programme you are applying (there might be more than one depending on the programme).

4) Send the admission letter: IMB School will personally communicate via email to each candidate the result of the admission process. If admitted, the candidate will receive a letter with the name of all the modules that they have been admitted to, together with the rest of the necessary information to start the enrolment process and depending on the case, apply for visas. In the event of not being admitted, the candidate may reapply for admission in the next edition.

Registration process


  1. Reservation – If the letter of admission is received more than 30 days before the start date of the module, the option to make a reservation will be given by paying 25% of the total amount of the tuition fee. The information required to make this first payment is given together with the admission letter.
  2.  Enrolment – The enrolment process ends with the payment of the remaining amount, which will be the result of deducting the amounts already paid for admission and reservation fees from the total amount of the registration. In addition, promotional and early-bird payment discounts may also be applied.The deadline for enrolment is 10 days before the start of the module. Only for those who have been admitted in the last round of admission (see this table), will the registration deadline be the day before the start of the module.

  • Loan processing takes about 5 minutes.
  • You can apply for a loan between €1,000 to €50,000, with a variable NIR from 4.65% NIR (4.75% APR) to a maximum of 19.95% NIR (21.95% APR), to be repaid over a period of 6 to 96 months. These financing conditions depend on your financial capacity score or FinScore.
  • Fintonic calculates your financial capability or FinScore with your main bank account information, which you will need to add to Fintonic after registering. It is a 100% secure process that takes less than a minute. Adding your account is also necessary to validate your details and get your online loan with Fintonic.
  • The financing offer is indicative, non-binding and has to be approved by the financial institution offering the personal loan after the necessary checks have been carried out.
  • For your security, Fintonic may request some documents to identify you or ensure that you are the account holder from which the FinScore is obtained. You can get your fast online loan without paperwork, just a digital version, a photo or screenshot will do.
  • Requirements to be met to obtain a loan through Fintonic: When you apply for a loan, it is important to meet the requirements of the financial institutions. Each financial institution has different requirements, which is why it is important to apply through Fintonic. The requirements that the entities analyse before granting you the loan include your level of income and your length of employment, your previous level of debt, that you are not in default files for having had defaults in the past, as well as other variables such as whether you own a home and your type of employment contract. In any case, at Fintonic they work to find the best loan adapted to your profile, whatever your situation.
