Oxford International Model United Nations

Oxford International Model United Nations (OxIMUN) will be the first destination of the 2019/2020 academic year of LeidenMUN. This is the 17th edition of this prestigious conference, which offers committees for everyone, from beginner to experienced delegates. Join us to experience a MUN conference at this leading academic institution, known for its outstanding intellectual achievements. Kick-start your academic year by applying for our delegation to one of the most excellent universities in the world.

In order to apply for our OxIMUN delegation, no MUN experience is required. As OxIMUN 2019 hosts 21 different committees, ranging from beginner to expert levels, OxIMUN is ideal for both first-timers as well as experienced delegates. We are looking for motivated students who are interested in international relations and who wish to improve their public speaking, negotiation and lobbying skills. The LeidenMUN programme is built upon three pillars. The first pillar being the Skills Labs, where we train delegates on skills such as public speaking, negotiation tactics, and resolution writing. The second pillar is the mock sessions we provide. Every Wednesday evening you will represent a United Nations Member State and debate with your fellow delegates on a given UN issue. The third pillar is the Personal Development Programme (PDP). We offer a tailored Personal Development Programme that consists of one-to-one coaching sessions by experienced and skilled LeidenMUN board members. As a result, we can guide beginners, as well as advanced delegates, on an individual level to maximize their potential. The focus is on your development as a young professional, thus, it goes beyond MUN related skills.
