Early Bird Fees are $65 per delegate, while Normal Fees are $75 per delegate.
How much does MUN experience matter?
You absolutely do not need to have taken part in a MUN before to join us at RMUN! We will be publishing a complete and detailed guide to Rules of Procedure (ROP) very soon. Delegates can refer to this before and during the Conference to familiarise themselves with MUN procedures. They can also approach their council chairs should they have any further questions.
We will also be conducting a complimentary training session, Fun With MUN, which aims to acquaint 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 from amongst our 10 councils. While we will do our best to take your choices into consideration, we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated your top choices. Countries will be allocated and delegates are not allowed to choose their preferred countries, or to make country allocation swaps with other delegates.
Can I double-del with a fellow delegate?
Yes, you can. However, please note that the only double-del council at RMUN 2018 is the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
What is the appropriate attire for the conference?
Formal business attire. An example of male business attire includes a blazer, formal shirt and long pants with dress shoes. An example of female business attire includes a blazer, blouse with pants or pencil skirt, or a formal business dress, with court shoes. Alternatively, you may come in your school’s formal uniform. Delegates will also be issued lanyards on the first day, which must be worn throughout the duration of the conference.
Will meals be provided?
Rest assured that all meals, comprising 3 lunches and 1 dinner, will be included in delegate fees! All meals catered will be Halal-certified, with non-beef and vegetarian options. 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.
Is there a minimum attendance criteria we have to meet for awards?
Yes, you will need to attend at least 50% of the total number of council sessions to qualify for awards.
