Oxford is heralded as one of the most prestigious universities in Europe, and therefore the same prestige can be credited to its OxiMUN conference. The conference attracts students from all over the world, with a diverse range of backgrounds. Leiden MUN is proud to have sent a delegation to this conference for several years, and will be sending a new delegation to the upcoming 2017 conference. In the previous years, our delegation’s success during this conference has been attributed to our 8-week preparation track.
The preparation track is founded on 4 pillars that we believe are the foundation of diplomacy. These pillars are: public speaking, resolution writing, lobbying, and research. During the preparation track you will participate in our Tuesday evening skills lab, where we will teach you the ins and outs of the individual pillars. In addition, every Wednesday evening you will engage in a MUN mock debate. During these debates you will apply the knowledge gained during the skills labs and our delegate trainers will present to give you extensive feedback.
Our training sessions are not solely completed in group environments, we apply an individual approach as well. Each delegate gets a personal trainer who will meet with you on a regular basis to discuss your personal development and give you one-on-one feedback.
You can apply for this delegation until the 3rd of September (23.59) by sending an email with a short motivational letter (500 words) and your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org (please use “application OXIMUN 17 – NAME” in the topic line). More information regarding the preparation track, our foundation, and the selection procedure can be requested via the same email-address. The conference will take place 3rd-5th November and the preparation track will start in the beginning of September.
