The Institute of Mathematics welcomes anyone who has an interest in mathematics and in our activities.

To apply for Membership of the Institute applicants must supply all information as requested on the application form, either hard-copy or via myIMA.

The Institute is required under its Royal Charter to validate applications and ensure that entry requirements are met. Administrative procedures are simplified for many applicants by the Institute recognising various schemes of postgraduate training and experience, and identifying certain standard appointments that meet the requirements for individual grades. The Institute will evaluate all applications and may seek confirmation or clarification from referees but those where standard components are not applicable may take longer to process.
