Organized annually by University College London students, University College London Model United Nations (UCLMUN) is a unique three-day international relations conference that brings together university students from around the world to simulate various organs of the United Nations and other international organizations. Students have the opportunity to act as delegates in one of a diverse range of committees. In addition, UCLMUN delegates are able to engage in simulations of international crises on application committees such as the NATO-Russia Council. Delegates are exposed to the fast-paced world of policy decision-making under pressure, as well as key geopolitical and military issues.
Building upon nine years of experience, UCLMUN X strives to provide every delegate with a dynamic, educational, and enriching opportunity to hone and showcase their abilities. UCLMUN has always aimed to welcome relative newcomers to the ranks of the MUN circuit, while still ensuring that debate is sufficiently rigorous and thought-provoking to challenge experienced delegates. UCLMUN X adheres to these objectives through a judicious mix of intense committee sessions and fun socials, which allowed delegates to get their fill of both mental stimulation and merry revelry while mixing with other delegates.
UCLMUN features five simulated committees of the United Nations, international organizations, and related governmental and non-governmental bodies. The staff of UCLMUN are carefully selected to include the most passionate and dedicated chairs from around the world, all of whome are extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and committed to the ideals of UCLMUN and the broader educational mission of Model United Nations, resulting in well-run and focused committees that provide the perfect setting for delegates to discuss some of the most pressing problems of our generation.
The conference blends together engaging committee sessions with exciting social events to provide an unforgettable experience, ensuring that when delegates leave the conference, they do so with new friends, new perspectives, and new dreams for the future. It is this passion, care and commitment to a holistic conference experience for all delegates that make UCLMUN one of the premier Model United Nations conferences in the UK.
At UCLMUN, delegates from around the world will be introduced to the fascinating realities and complexities of international relations, they will be provided with a unique opportunity to meaningfully engage with contemporary world issues, polish public- speaking and communication skills, and become more confident and articulate global citizens, while forming lifelong friendship and cooperation that cut across borders and a deeper understanding of cultures and perspectives beyond their own.
