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.
Muhammad Zulkifl / English Language & Literature and English Education / Year 3
Upon arriving at HKBU, I yearned for a place that allowed me to expand my public speaking skills. Walking along with the campus, I happened upon a booth promoting the HKBUMUN Club, and the rest is pretty much history. MUN has not only been an experience for me to throw myself into the chaos of international affairs but also a chance to meet like-minded people. After two years of participating, I am now taking on the torch to continue the legacy that is HKBUMUN. I hope you come along for the ride!
Diane Zhang / Humanities / Year 4
Hi everyone, this is Diane form the Exco team. My MUN experience has helped me to ponder over the risks to humanity, such as the misuse of artificial intelligence, inequalities intensified by pandemics, and climate change. These matters alert us to the most crucial and yet ignored — challenges we will ever encounter. During delegates developmet, you can deepen your understanding regarding global issues in an objective manner, you can also enhance your research skills and the ability to communicate ideas. It is not just about what can be achieved, but what is open for people to achieve once they have learned to focus on the same rather than the differences. If you wish to look for your spark, this is the platform!

Sanskar Shrestha / Computer Science / Year 2
Hey there! I am Sanskar — a deep thinker and an explorer. Self-growth has always been an important trait in my personality. This growth mindset has helped me get out of my confort zone and challenge myself by doing things that I had never done before. This same trait of mine has pushed me onto this journey of MUN where I am learning about diplomacy, politics, and international relations. So, without having any doubts, join us in this exciting journey of exploration and growth.

Rachel Yeung / Government & International Studies / Year 3
Hello everyone, this is Rachel from the Executive Committee. MUN provides a platform for all of us to challenge ourselves. As a student who is keen on knowing internaitonal issues, I then decided to give myself an opportunity to become a MUN Exco. It is believed that our public speaking and communication skills can be enhanced throughout this journey. Besides being a student studying International Studies, I hope to gain more practical and professional experiences in this club to train my critical thinking and negotiation skills. That's why I am here today and look forward to seeing more friends join our activities and conferences!
