You can expect to have lots of fun while arguing the points made by villain states as well as those that ‘play by the rules’. It’s a license to not be politically correct in many ways, as students are expected to take the view and standpoint of countries which they may themselves not agree with personally and it’s a real chance to learn more about human rights issues around the globe.
It’s always lively and exciting and students debate in exactly the same style as those who would be doing so in UN assemblies and committees. Students are expected to provide researched debating arguments for and against different scenarios and situations, as well as listen to their opponents. Taking different perspectives and understanding viewpoints that students might normally not share at all, MUN provides many of the skills needed in School, at university and beyond.
From engaging with newspaper articles and websites in a way students might not otherwise, MUN also encourages development of not only academic, but also intellectual skills.
