Once you reach 300 credits you are eligible to undertake the Fellowship Case Study. 

A MIM Fellowship is the highest accreditation you can attain as a relocation service professional.  After becoming MIM certified by completing all four fixed syllabus modules, you can go on to attain your MIM+ certification by completing a further three modules of your choice.  In order to become a MIM Fellow you will need to deliver a successfully graded 2,500 word case study. 

We realise that everyone is busy and while professional development is a valuable addition to the CV it often gets lost in the daily activities. Our case study coaching will help you devote some dedicated thinking time to the process and make progress with a minimal time commitment.

Case Study Coaching

“I would love to go for a Fellowship by completing the case study but just don’t know where to start.”

“I just don’t have the structure and motivation to do it, I am sure if I had a deadline I would get it done.”

Does this sound like you? We can now offer case study coaching to help you through the process. If you are interested in achieving this prestigious addition to your CV then please contact the ARP to obtain the contact details of an accredited case study mentor.

Having a mentor will help you:

  • Organise your thoughts and move forward taking only 30mins out of your day;
  • Prepare a draft to get you started;
  • Help you understand the submission requirements;
  • Advise you on how to meet Harvard Referencing.

We can’t do it for you, but we can help you plan your work, give you some support and help you schedule the time required.

What is the case study?

The case study is used to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of a theory or model that has informed your professional practice. It asks you to explain a theory or model and then tell the story of how you apply these ideas to your professional life.

The aim of the case study is for you to document and evidence how you apply things you have learned to your professional role. It starts with you explaining who you are and what you do. It then asks you to explain something you have learnt, this might be a theory or an idea. This can come from a book or training that you have attended. You will need to be able to define where the idea came from by referencing the source. Referencing is just a way to ensure authors are credited for their work and that you use reputable sources.

You will then explain how this idea has influenced your work and what you have learnt through application. Few theories are ever complete so it is useful to highlight potential issues or contradictions that you have found when relating theory to practice.  Finally you arrive at a conclusion of what this means for professional practice in your field.

The best way to start this case study is to give yourself a title that will guide your writing. For example…

  • How XXXX affects the relocation role;
  • Enhancing service using XXXXXX;
  • Can XXXX inform our interactions with YYYY?

Case Study Mentoring - How does it work?
