At Model UN, delegates gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations, by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets. It is an opportunity for students to debate issues that confront world leaders and to draft resolutions in response to these global issues. Participation in Model UN can help to develop team-working and communication skills, using initiative, and working under pressure.
