Can I cancel my registration?

Yes, you can cancel your registration until the 1st of April. After this date, we unfortunately cannot refund your ticket price. Please, let us know via email ( if you are unable to attend the conference. 

Do I already need to have previous experience?

If you consider yourself a beginner in MUN, you are of course still welcome to attend committee sessions at ZuMUN. For delegates with no or little previous knowledge about MUN, we do however recommend visiting one of the rules of procedure workshops we offer at the conference or doing some reading up on MUN procedures beforehand, as the experience is usually more fun and fruitful if you know how MUN works. We also send out a study guide some weeks before the conference which should provide you with all the necessary information about the topic you will be discussing in your committee, however you are still recommended to do your own research on the matter and your country’s position in particular.

Are there scholarships to attend the conference?

Unfortunately, we are unable to award scholarships to delegates or faculty advisors.

What is the dress code?

The dress code at ZuMUN is Western Business Attire for the formal part of the conference (sessions and ceremonies). This does exclude socials.

How old do I have to be?

For an optimal conference experience, we recommend that delegates are at least 16 years old. However, the minimum age of attendance is 14.

It should be noted, however, that for a specific social event of ZuMUN 2023, one must be 18 or above to attend.

Can I attend as a single high school delegate?

As long as you are underage, we require that you are accompanied by a faculty advisor, in which case it is not possible for you to register as a single delegate. However, if you are over 18 and a high school student, and want to register as a single delegate, feel free to Contact Us.

Why is there a price difference?

For Delegates under 18 the conference costs are 100 CHF per delegate and for delegates over 18 ist costs 120 CHF during early bird registration.

The reason for this cost difference is because delegates under 18 will not be able to attend one of the social activities.

What is a faculty advisor?

A delegate who is still a minor is required to be accompanied by a faculty advisor for the entire duration of the conference. A faculty advisor is a person of age (usually a teacher or parent/ legal guardian) who is thought to assist with all of the logistics of attending the conference. Although recommended, he or she does not need prior Model United Nations experience.

Who can become a faculty advisor?

The faculty advisor acts as our first point of contact during the conference and is responsible for you as a delegate. Therefore, the faculty advisor has to be over the age of 18 and has to be present in Zurich during the whole conference. This faculty advisor is also responsible for the students’ online registration, paying the delegate fees, presenting themselves at the registration office on the first day to confirm the arrival of their delegation, as well as for the well-being of their delegation members for the duration of the conference. ZuMUN does not take on any responsibility for supervising minors.
