Can I sign up as an independent delegate?
Unfortunately, this year, we do not allow for independent registrations. We will only be accepting registrations from school delegations. If you would like to be a part of Raffles Model United Nations 2017 and your school has not been invited, do send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do registrations and payment end?
Normal Registration: Registrations end on 14th April 2017. The deadline for payment is 28th April 2017 for registrations sent in by 14th April 2017. Secretariat will send more details regarding payment methods once registrations forms have been received.

What are the delegate fees for RMUN 2017?
Normal Registration: For registrations done by 14th April 2017, 23:59 hours, the delegate fees will be $70.
Late Registration: As for registrations received after 14th April 2017, delegates will have to pay $80. This is because late registrations will involve a greater amount of resources and logistics to process, and thus we seek your understanding regarding this matter.
How much does MUN experience matter?
You do not need to have taken part in a MUN before. We will be publishing a complete and detailed compilation of Rules of Procedure (ROP) very soon. Delegates can refer to this before and during the Conference in order to be more informed of MUN procedures.
We will also be conducting a training session for all beginner-level delegates – Fun With MUN, which will be held on 6 May 2017, aims to inform and help beginner-level delegates with the basics of MUN, including Rules of Procedure, speeches, motions and how to engage and be involved in debate during council sessions. We highly encourage all beginner-level delegates (0-2 MUN experiences) to take part in this training session.
Can we choose our preferred councils and countries?
You will be able to choose your top three most preferred councils amongst our 10 councils. However, do note that delegates may not get their preferred choice of councils though the Secretariat will do our best in ensuring so. The Secretariat will allocate countries based on their discretion and delegates are not allowed to choose their preferred countries.
What is the appropriate attire for the conference?
Formal business attire. An example of male business attire will include a blazer, formal shirt and long pants with court shoes. An example of female business attire will include a blazer, blouse with longs pants or long skirt, or a formal business dress.
Will meals be provided?
Rest assured that all meal costs including 3 lunches and 1 dinner will be included in delegate fees. All meals will be catered from Halal certified caterers and vegetarian options will be provided. Any other special dietary requirements and allergies should be detailed in the registration form sent to your schools.
What is the Joint Crisis Council?
The Joint Crisis Council is a key exciting feature of RMUN. Two cabinets will be pitted against each other with debates centered around the actions of delegates and responses to real-time event updates. The JCC is highly recommended for delegates who enjoy employing strategies and the pressure of navigating through a chaotic situation. Delegates wishing to be a part of the Joint Crisis Council can indicate ‘JCC’ as one of their top three council choices on the registration form. The Secretariat will then allocate delegates to the respective Cabinets.
