Welcome to the Research Department's Open Day page!

We will be holding the next Research Open Day on the afternoon of 11 November (1pm - 6pm) and we would like to welcome those curious about the programme along to the Academy in person.

The Academy’s doctoral programme provides a framework for developing long-term projects that will drive distinctive careers, and a collaborative environment for musicians to share and critique working practices. It is also an important research and development engine for the Academy’s taught programmes.

This symposium showcases a small selection of current projects, encompassing aspects of artistry and professional/instrumental development, engagement with programming practices, and exploration of creative processes. The symposium begins with introductions to the Academy's doctoral environment and concludes with an open discussion about the nature of the programme.

The Research Department's last Doctoral Symposium and Open Day took place on Friday 19 November 2021. You can watch a recording of the event below.
