Model United Nations

Presentation by delegates during the Model United Nations

The Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the United Nations Assembly for students. It aims to educate participants about civic responsibility, effective communication, globalization and multilateral diplomacy.

At the College, all first-year students conduct research on a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.

During their second year, students can choose to develop further skills and knowledge of the MUN by being part of the executive team to prepare, plan and run the MUN. They act as the Secretary General, Presidents and Chairs, Administrative Staff, and Media personnel for the MUN.

A few students may also have the opportunity to participate in MUNs in other schools.

A student voice

Being woken early in the morning by a Swiss, brushing your teeth standing next to a Dane, hurrying to class in the morning rush hour with an Uzbek, sitting next to an Angolan in class, being taught Economics by a Guatemalan, going to a Ghanaian to clear confusions in Maths, going for a run with a Brazilian; all these are little things that make this place beautiful. This place is special.
