Open Days (Degrees and Programmes)

Open Day 2021


The Royal Irish Academy of Music is home to many of Ireland’s finest musicians, industry leaders, and teachers. RIAM is also home to hundreds of ambitious students on a clear pathway to becoming professional performers, composers, conductors, educators, and administrators.

If you are interested in learning more about studying at RIAM from September 2022 or 2023, join us on Friday 8 October 2021, 4:00 p.m. for our first Virtual Open Day of the year.

Meet our teaching staff, hear from alumni who have gone on to enjoy successful careers, and interact with our amazing current students in this informative and enjoyable session. The RIAM Open Day will provide you with valuable insight into the musical offering for undergraduate and postgraduate students at Ireland’s longest-established conservatoire.

We are a national conservatoire that takes great pride in knowing our students individually and nurturing them in the kind of music career that they wish to achieve.

Join us!
