Get involved in the RMA’s student work

There are lots of ways students can get involved in the RMA:

Become a Member

Becoming a member of the RMA is a great way to keep in touch with what’s hot in British musicology.

Attend the RMA Research Students’ Conference

Present a paper or simply come along to the highlight of the RMA students’ calendar – the annual RMA Research Students’ Conference.

Organise an RMA Study Day

Apply for financial support and administrative guidance to help organise a study day on any music-related topic.

Write a Blog Post

Do you have something you’d like to share with the world? Then why not write a blog post? Submissions are welcome from all RMA members on any music-related topic.

Join the Committee

Any student member of the RMA is eligible to put themselves forward for election to the Student Committee, which is an important part of the overall Committee structure of the RMA.

Prospective candidates are asked to send a brief explanation of who they are and why they wish to put themselves forward for election to the Student Representatives. A hustings takes place each year at the RMA Research Students’ Conference, at which candidates give a short pitch to promote their candidacy. Votes are then cast at the Conference. Two ordinary committee members and one student representative are elected to the Student Committee each year.
