What is the connection between EuroMUN and UNSA?

EuroMUN is a sub-committee founded by the United Nations Student Association. With the mission of educating young students on international frameworks of multilateral organizations, EuroMUN strives to maintain itself as the largest simulation of various international organizations available to university students from every continent. The main objective for our conference is to provide students with the opportunity to interact with young professionals such as themselves and discuss pressing issues in various committees that they might be interested in.

Can I participate in MUNs if I have never done one before?

Of course, there is a first time for everything. It’s never a bad time to try new things!

What is the Permanent Delegation and how does the selection process work?

The Permanent Delegation consists of a group of 15 – 20 selected students that will represent UNSA internationally and who will develop various skills during this academic year. These skills will be develop through a series of workshops and trainings that will familiarize members with the MUN atmosphere and the world of negotiation, international affairs, international law, and of course, members will get a taste of how the United Nations works as an international organization. The selection process happens during the beginning of the academic year, where interested students send a copy of their CV and a letter of motivation to our Head Delegations, who will conduct the selection process. It is not necessary to have previous MUN experience in order to join the PD, however, it is an advantage to be familiar with the concept.

How can I become a Volunteer?

You can become a volunteer by gathering information about our NGOs and see which one fits you best. After that you can apply for your chosen NGO and follow the selection procedure.
