Choose to study in POLSIS and you will have the opportunity to be part of a delegation from the University at the Harvard Model United Nations event.
Each year, the School of Government and Society sends a delegation of eight MA and final-year undergraduate students to the Harvard National Model United Nations. This annual event, attended by 3000 students from 35 different nations, gives delegates the chance to participate in a high-level simulation mirroring the operations of the UN and its committee system, organised by an expert team of Model UN veterans based at Harvard University.
This event allows students to develop a wide range of skills, learn something about operating within international institutions, network with staff and students from some of the best educational institutions in the world (and hopefully have a lot of fun too!). Birmingham’s delegates were recruited through a competitive application process within the School, and received School funds to cover the cost of their registration at the event and their hotel accommodation.
