FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What proficiency in English do I need to participate in MUN?
There is no specific proficiency level required to join our Team. Improving your English skills in a relaxed environment is one of the main advantages of participating in MUN. The English level required to obtain the Swiss High School Diploma (“Matura”) will easily suffice!
Can I Join the Club at any time during the semester?
Of course! Contact us on social media or by email to let us know, or find us at one of our weekly debates!
Can I show up for any session remaining in a topic block after having missed the first session of said topic block?
Yes of course! If you need help with signing up, feel free to contact us!
Do I have to be a law or political science major to participate in MUN?
Absolutely not! MUN is open to all students at the University of St. Gallen! We strive to gain members from as many different studies as possible as it advances the debate through the variety of background knowledge of our members.
Do I have to show up every week for the weekly session?
It is not required of you to show up every week. We are all students with deadlines and exams and we understand that you cannot make it to every debate in a semester.
How much preparation is needed for MUN?
We discuss a new topic every four weeks and create a study guide for each topic. The study guide serves as a good starting point for your research. You can always go above and beyond when researching your country’s stance on a specific issue. However, as you attend MUN voluntarily you are free in choosing how much work you put in.
Do I need any prior knowledge about international law or about the UN?
No! You will learn about the basics through MUN. An interest in international law, politics and the UN is advantageous.
