Welcome to Ghent Model United Nations

GhentMUN is the MUN conference of Ghent, in cooperation with Ghent University (UGent) and the United Nations Youth Association of Ghent (VVN Youth Gent). We offer committees for beginners to expert level participants.

Chair applications are now closed

The team of chairs, as well as the topics of each committee, have been selected. We have gathered a team of experts in each field, therefore ensuring that the best candidate has been allocated to each committee. You can check who the chairs are below in this page.

Delegate applications are now closed

Applications after March 20th will not be taken into consideration.The result of the selection will be communicated to successful candidates by March 24th. As participants, you are offered multiple choices on which country and committee you would like to represent. However, we cannot ensure that you will be chosen to represent such country, as this will depend on the assigning criteria of the Secretariat. We will base our assignment criteria on the previous delegate's experience, motivation letter and expected outcome of the MUN.

Delegates are expected to cover their participation fees, transport, and visa (if necessary to enter Schengen) costs and reservations. Anyhow, GhentMUN will be covering most meals during the event and we can offer you free accommodation with a local host (limited spots available). We will also provide you with an invitation letter in order to get a visa as soon as the 25€ participation payment is made. If you cannot take part in GhentMUN, we can provide you with a full refund (participation + social events fees) up to March 31st; or a refund of the participation fee up to April 8th.

Payment of fees We acknowledge there can be trouble with the payment of the participation fees. Therefore, we provide you our bank data in order for you to make a transfer. Please state your name and surname in observations.
