What do we offer? 

YorkMUN continues to offer a high quality delegate experience for an affordable price. For the price we offer delegates, no other conference in the UK can boast such unique committees or world renowned chairs. 

York is one of England's most historic and beautiful cities, dating back to the Roman Period. The stunning vistas and history of the town are worth visiting alone, and we are very grateful to hold our prestigious conference in this city.

UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC)

Special Political and Decolonisation Committee (SPECPOL)

Council of the EU

Historical Committee (Topic TBA)
