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.

In MUN, not only that you learn how to be diplomatic, but also the perceptions and the presentations of different nations in the world stage. You will unlock a lot of new and interesting things about the global arena when you have to act from a nation’s view. Be sure to try, learn and explore. The skills you acquired will benefit you not only during your university life, but also your whole lifetime adventure.

I joined MUN last year and I believe that it was one of the best steps I took in my university life. MUN club is about learning diplomacy, discovering different countries, collaborating with others and of course having fun. Hopefully this year I can make my contribution for the further development of our club and have another amazing chapter of my university life.

HKBU MUN is very a special and unique club that gives a platform for students like myself to broaden my diplomatic skills with different people and issues. Last year, I remember I saw the ExCo recruitment poster around campus and wanted to apply for it badly but I couldn’t due to personal issues . But this year , I am more than happy to be the Director of External Affairs, I would like to expand the club’s connections and events to a whole new level during my directorship. Personally , I would like to meet people from diverse backgrounds and culture, Moreover, I would like to heartfully give my best to this club and give best solutions for global issues in order to tackle them.
