What prior knowledge do students need of model united nations?
Students do not need to have any prior knowledge of Model United Nations to succeed in this Summer Institute. Beginning students will be taught everything they need to know from how to deliver a speech and what exactly is international politics to how to become strong and effective delegates. Seasoned delegates are also welcome to attend MUNSI, where they will be able to hone their skills in a fast and competitive atmosphere.
