The RMA Research Students' Conference is open to postgraduates studying in the UK or abroad. It offers the opportunity for students to present research in music, musicology and related areas in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
The conference provides an opportunity for young researchers to meet together, to gain experience of the conference environment (as listeners, participants, and chairs), to hear papers, workshops, and music, and to gain insights into the profession.
Each year, the programme includes skills training sessions, student papers, composition and performance workshops, concerts, and social events.
The RMA invites expressions of interest from potential hosts for the RMA Research Students Conference for January 2016 and January 2017. The Association values partnerships with universities and conservatoires across the UK in the promotion each year of its Annual Research Students’ Conference. The Association supports each conference through the work of its Council members and officers, with a financial grant (currently £1500), and through financial support for the Roche keynote address.
