May 2021

Take advantage today of Kumon’s UK & Ireland Refer a Friend Scheme!
Throughout the history of the Kumon programme, from its origins in Japan in the 1950s, then internationally in the 1970s and 80s, the demand has often been organic and very much from word-of-mouth recommendations from parents, who saw and had experienced the transformative effects the study methods had on their children’s abilities. 

We’re always thrilled to hear when parents have come to Kumon after a recommendation from a friend or family member. Whether that’s a recommendation for the Kumon study method itself, or the experience at a particular Kumon centre, a personal referral has certainly contributed to Kumon’s 630 study centres being consistently recognised as the largest and best provider of supplementary education in the UK and Ireland.  

We are excited to be able to introduce the Kumon national Refer a Friend Scheme where you can now gift your friends and family, that are interested in studying with Kumon, with a Free Registration! Not only that, but we’ll give you a €20 reward for each recommended family that goes on to enrol with a participating Kumon centre, meaning that we get the opportunity to thank you for all your recommendations too!  

In order to recommend Kumon and be rewarded, you just need to create your own referral link (by clicking on this link or visiting, and then share it with your friends and family. You can share the same referral link with your contacts however you want - by text, WhatsApp, email and your social media pages. There is no limit to how many times your link can be used as it’s assigned to you.

Every family that wishes to join Kumon and to benefit from your Free Registration offer should click on the link to accept the referral, which will then direct them to the Kumon website to book an enrolment meeting at a participating centre of their choice, throughout the UK and Ireland. Once they present the referral link at their Kumon enrolment session they’ll be able to claim a Free Registration.

We’ll use the code in the link to match them up and, once validated a month after enrolling, your referral account will be credited with €20 reward points. You can save or redeem the points against a wonderful selection of e-vouchers at, the UK and Ireland's leading multi-retailer gift voucher provider.  In Ireland they can be redeemed at; Aim Cash & Carry, American Golf, Argos, Brand Max, Brogans, Boyle Total Health Pharmacy, Camden Square, Centz, Clarks, DV8, Eason, Edinburgh Woollen Mill, Ernest Jones, GAP, Gosh Shoes, Greenes Shoes, H.Samuel, Halfords, Heatons, Hodges, Figgis, Homesavers, Homesense, Iceland, Liverpool FC Official Club Stores, McCauley, Milano, New Look, Open Fairways, Paco, Peacocks, Petstop, Regatta, River Island, Schuh, Seduz, Shaws Department Stores, Shoe Zone, Shoreline Hotel, Skechers, Sports Direct, Tailor of Blue, The Perfume Shop, The Works, TK Maxx, Trabolgan, USC, Waterstones, Woodie’s DIY.
