HKBU Model United Nations Club
Do you have a knack for international relations?
Are you curious about the ever-increasing political tension?
Want to act as a professional UN diplomat?
What is Model United Nations (MUN)?
- An authentic simulation of the United Nations (UN) committee structure, where students assume the roles of United Nations member states to discuss and develop resolutions for issues of international scope and importance
- An experience based on diplomacy, compromises, knowledge, learning, and friendships
Why should I join HKBU MUN Club?
The HKBU MUN Club is here to fulfil your ambition:
- - To expand your capacity for public speaking
- - To equip you with diplomatic and inter-personal skills
- - To broaden your global horizon through participation in overseas conferences
(e.g. National Model United Nations -New York, Geneva International Model United Nations, Singapore Model United Nations.)
We also provide you with a series of useful MUN trainings which all aim to:
- Enrich and expand your breadth of knowledge, social concern, and awareness of regional and international issues and relations;
- Strengthen your research, critical-thinking, analytical, negotiation, and presentation skills;
- Promote your understanding of cultural diversity and cross-cultural cooperation as you meet with elites from around the world; and
- Foster your passion to serve the local community and global village.
Executive Committee members are responsible for running the club from MUN training designs to organizing events with the support from Office of Student Affairs. They also serve as mentors for the trainees. Not only that they intentionally support and advise all of the students throughout their training, but they are also responsible for the training sessions and leading the delegations to overseas conferences.
Natalie Zeng / Government and International Studies / Year 3
Greetings to everyone who is reading this! I fortunately participated in three online international MUN conferences in this tough pandemic time. This enabled me to have direct dialogues and constructive debates regarding the most heated topics. It’s highly appreciated that I’ve learned about diverse ideologies, cultures, and interests together, and I’ve made friends who are as passionate as me on this platform. That’s why today I’m reaching out to encourage you to join us, connect with us and start your MUN journey with us. If not now, when?
Moon Lam / International Journalism / Year 4
Joining MUN is always the best decision I have ever made throughout my study. MUN is not just a party place, but a society that teaches people lobbying, debating and communicating.
While representing other countries, I can always think from another perspective and understand the world. International issues are also always discussed in MUN which makes me feel like a “real global citizen”.
We travelled, danced and learnt together. It is always a lifetime experience! So, why not?

Selina Chan / Human Resources Management / Year 4
Being a MUN Exco is a challenging work but it is also a precious opportunity for me to train up myself and broaden my horizon through the training and international conferences. MUN provides a platform for students interested in different cultures and international issues like me to know more in a comprehensive way. In MUN, We are not just having fun, we are also learning various skills. I am sure that joining MUN will be my once-in-a-lifetime experience and also, for you.

Tiffany Chan / Human Resources Management / Year 2
Hello everyone! I am Tiffany. Being keen on music, I have been trying to understand others’ feelings and thoughts through listening to songs. Undeniably, music could be the most powerful 'common language’ in the world, which knocks down the language barriers between people. However, as a global villager, having advanced communication skills and strong connection to the world is also indispensably important. Therefore, I have made the application to join the MUN club to challenge myself and broaden my horizon. The world is altering in a way that no exact prognostication can be made. There are lots of international issues worth people’s deliberation to facilitate a better world. It would be a great learning opportunity to boost your self-confidence and reach more international friends through joining activities conducted by the club!

Tina Lo / Finance / Year 2
Model United Nations is always known as an excellent platform for students to develop a variety of soft skills. I believe that MUN will be the best place for me to broaden my horizon by meeting other outstanding students from all around the world and participating in international conferences. Not only the conferences will benefit students like me, the preparation work for the conferences will also be a unique training for me as it trains up my decision-making skill and also research analytical and critical thinking skills. I assume that these skills set would strive me through both academic work and real-life work in the future.

Michael / English / Year 2
Swimmer+tech fanatic+public speaker+debater. Now add MUN exco to that list. That’s me -- Michael. A question that has always been on my mind is "I love sports and tech, but what's the point if I can't even talk about them?" That's where MUN, one of the biggest stages out there, comes in to play. Debating throughout secondary school has showed me a glimpse of the possibilities that come with exploring global issues, while creating online content on platforms like YouTube, Bilibili and Weibo has allowed me to get a taste of what it's like to put yourself out there, but I believe MUN is what could take me to the next level. If you want to challenge yourself at public speaking, forge potentially lifelong friendships and discover what it means to be a global citizen, then join us on this wonderful journey to create some awesome memories!
