The RMA holds regular Study Days on a wide range of topics in the study of music. Study Days usually focus on a single topic or visit, are sometimes collaborative events run by more than one institution and may include seminars, discussion groups and workshops.
RMA Study Days are student-led one day events that are open to scholars of all levels, normally (although not exclusively) convened by postgraduate students, with the RMA providing advice and assistance, and financial support. They offer organisers an opportunity to develop administrative and fundraising skills and to assume responsibility for a project.
The RMA welcomes proposals for Study Days from all members of the Association.
If you have an idea for a Study Day, you should contact the Student Liaison Officer, who will discuss your proposal and help you put together an application. Organisers should consult the guidelines on the RMA profile at student Study and Training Days. Please note that this is a separate process from the RMA ‘Conference Affiliation’ application as advertised on the main RMA website.
Where the RMA makes a financial contribution to a conference or study day, we require organisers to report back on the event before funds can be released.
