Delegation

Schools are assigned delegations based on the total number of participants. A school can apply for a maximum number of 9 delegates.

Security Council delegations and seats on the the Special Conference on Reformation are assigned to schools with previous MCMUN experience that have proven their enthusiasm and intellectuality.

All delegations must have an ambassador, and this should be assigned by the MUN director when submitting Form 2.

An ambassador may be asked to deliver a speech during the opening ceremony. Other than that, he/she is responsible for all other members of the delegation.

The list of delegations will be announced on our website once the application process is finalised.

Administrative Staff

At our school, we have a MUN Apprenticeship Club for 9th grade students. In this club, they prepare for the challenging nature of the MUN Club they will be involved in for the upcoming years. Administrative staff members are selected from this club based on their performance. Letters of Motivation might be required based on the decision of the MUN advisor involved.

The Head of Administrative Staff holds numerous meetings with the admins prior to the conference in order to teach them the fundamental responsibilities of an admin, preparing them for the challenges they will face.
