WHO ARE WE?

We are the Model United Nations (M.U.N.) Society of the University of Sheffield (also known as SheffMUNSoc).
As an MUN society, we hold meetings on a weekly basis where we engage in MUN debates organised by the society. An MUN debate is an educational simulation of United Nations debates.
MUN debates are a great way to learn about diplomacy and international relations, as well as improving public speaking and debating skills.
Through our weekly meetings, we aim to prepare ourselves as much as possible for annual conferences both in the UK and abroad, and to generally have a good time!
If you’re interested in debates, public speaking or just the United Nations itself, please don’t hesitate to join us and get involved!

 The University of Sheffield M.U.N. society is an affiliate member of United Nations Association UK (UNA-UK).
