How can I participate?

There are two possible ways to gain Model UN experience at FAU:

  1. The FAUMUN primary program with preparatory seminar and conference in New York
  1. The secondary program including two weekend sessions:

An intensive preparatory weekend (one day of speech training, one day of negotiation training, and one day with a preparatory simulation) and one weekend of applying the acquired skills at the international BayernMUN ( in Nuremberg. Accommodation and food is included in the price below. The secondary program does not require any application. You can register via StudOn. Please read through the diagram carefully.

(Registration is open)

Please be aware that we receive many more applications than the number of applicants we can accept. For this reason, the application alone does not guarantee the participation in FAUMUN. Only the secondary program is accessible without application and open to all students via StudOn registration as long as there are places left. You may register for the secondary program on StudOn and undo your registration if you were accepted for the primary program.
