Membership applications are now open!
Joining the KULMUN association is not necessary to participate in the KU Leuven Model United Nations Conference: A major source of confusion is the difference between membership in the KULMUN association and participation in the KULMUN conference. The KULMUN conference is a Model United Nations conference (MUN) open to both members and non-members from anywhere in the world (What is an MUN?).

Why join us?
Get Involved in the Most
KULMUN provides its members a platform to not only engage in international politics through high quality MUN conferences (what's an MUN conference? click here.) but also a place to gain in depth knowledge into these issues. We also aim to give our members the tools to fully tackle these topics through our various training activities.
You will be able to attend plenty of high quality MUN conferences ranging from OxiMUN hosted by Oxford, CUIMUN by Cambridge, BiMUN by the University of Bonn, the Harvard WorldMUN and of course KULMUN2022, our very own conference.
With such a wide range of incredible conferences we can guarantee our members a comprehensive number of opportunities to really engage in fantastic debates.
Build the Foundation
of Your Future Career
In today's job market, no matter the field of study employers are putting a greater emphasis on a strong soft skill foundation. No matter your planned profession KULMUN's activities will hone skills highly relevant to any profession.
By joining KULMUN and attending the various MUN conferences we send delegations to, you can prove to your future employers that you have both the will and capacity to expand your skills beyond your study. This is essential for your employability. These skills include but are not limited to:
Convincing communication: Whether it's speaking in front of a crowd or one on one we provide a range of training activities including public speaking and negotiation trainings to greatly expand your communications skills.
Leadership and initiative: During MUN conferences your initiative and leadership skills are greatly stretched when leading blocs on the negotiating table.
Adaptability: Every conference you will have to learn a brand new topic and adopt and debate the views of a country that may be vastly different from your own. Your ability to adapt will be greatly expanded as you must learn quickly and learn to greatly shift your perspective in each debate.
And much more: These are just a few of the soft skills we develop, others include mediation skills, team work, organisational skills and many more.
