HMUN

Harvard Model
United Nations

From 24 to 31 January 2023

Among the oldest and most prestigious simulations in the world, the HarvardMUN is entirely organized by Harvard University for high school students. One of the most important moments of the project is the College Fair, during which will be explained how to select and enter Harvard University and other prestigious American universities.

The Training

In order to best approach the simulation, students, in the months leading up to their departure, participate in the Delegate Training Course. All our lessons are interactive and take place in English. Our instructors are native speakers of English, but thanks to their years of experience in the world of simulations, they are ready to help students gradually come into contact with the English used in the world of international diplomacy. The Delegate Training Course is divided into four modules, for a total of 70 hours. The course is conducted in e-learning mode on our website.
