Allgemeine Studien

 

For WWU students only!

If you are currently studying in Münster, here is something that might be interesting for you.

 

Prior to the conference, in the beginning of March, we will hold a two day preparatory seminar for the conference. This seminar will include workshops on the UN, the Rules of Procedures, Resolution Writing and Training Debates.

 

If you need “Allgemeine Studien” for your university course at the WWU, you can receive 5 credit points for this seminar. Your performance record will include:

 

  • the complete participation in the preparation seminar
  • the complete participation in the MUIMUN conference (March 23rd-27th, 2019)
  • a separate registration on our website is necessary and possible from November 1st, 2019
  • the assessment of your performance during a determined committee session
  • writing two position papers on the topics of the assigned committee (about 2-3 pages in total)
  • writing a final report on the seminar and the conference (about 6-8 pages)

 

If you do not need “Allgemeine Studien” for your studies you are very welcome to take part in the preparation workshops anyway, you just won’t be able to obtain credit points for it.

 

In order to participate or for any further questions please send an email to secgen@muimun.org. We will provide you with additional details on the application process.
