WHAT ARE THE DATES FOR BITSMUN'21?
Given the current pandemic, there is quite a lot of uncertainty regarding this situation. At BITSMUN, your safety matters and the Secretariat would not like to put any delegate at risk. That being said, We currently expect there to be some improvements in the recovery, and would tentatively have a conference at the end of March, or in early April. This is speculative and would be subject to change, depending on the conditions.
WHY PARTICIPATE IN MODEL UN?
Model UN is an excellent activity that has the potential to develop an individual and have an impact on society - when done right. There are estimated to be thousands of MUN conferences annually, and not all may be helpful for a participant. That being said, at BITSMUN, delegates are given the chance to develop themselves as individuals, by gaining knowledge, confidence, and social skills.
Additionally, ample opportunities are offered to delegates at BITSMUN to help make the world a slightly better place, by working with our NGO partners on conference to support a cause, and the chance to participate in social initiatives such as beach-cleanups.
WHY PARTICIPATE IN BITSMUN?
BITSMUN has always stood out from the rest of the MUN crowd for a great deal of reasons. We constantly strive to bring the spirit of innovation and intensive research via a realistic, academic simulation of the thriving international diplomatic community of the United Nations, and provide our delegates with a deep and lasting insight. Further, debate isn't the only focal point; at BITSMUN, we strive to make an actual impact on society.
In addition, BITSMUN also offers its participants excellent social events and the Goa environment will surely leave a memorable experience.
WHO CAN TAKE PART IN BITSMUN?
All students in undergraduate or graduate programmes and high school students are eligible to participate in BITSMUN.
DO I NEED MUN EXPERIENCE?
Absolutely not - a considerable number of participants at BITSMUN every year have had no experience with MUNs before. Enthusiasm is the characteristic we look for the most. In case you are a first-timer wanting to know more, then feel free to connect with someone from the organizing committee, they would be more than happy to share some documentation in the form of PDFs with you to bring you up to speed.
IS BITSMUN OPEN FOR DELEGATIONS?
Participation in BITSMUN depends on an individual application. If a group of students are willing to participate, then they may file their individual applications in a bundle and pay the application fee in one sum. In that case, we would like to ask you to pass this information on to us as soon as possible, so that we can avoid confusion.
