Welcome Delegates to the Model UN Society!
Model United Nations is an academic simulation in which participants step into the shoes of world leaders to debate and resolve global issues. By discussing current topics and representing their adopted country’s position, delegates will often be arguing from an unfamiliar perspective, developing knowledge, understanding and empathy.
By equipping participants with mediation, analytical and leadership skills, while highlighting the interdependence of the modern world, we hope to foster future diplomats who will face global challenges with a spirit of compassionate cooperation.
London Metropolitan University is one of just 22 universities in the world to join the UN network.
London Metropolitan University, has completed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Language Careers network, which supports the training of interpreters and translators around the globe.
