Earning Credits at Online TEIMUN 2021

The TEIMUN Foundation provides certain University of Groningen students with the possibility to earn 5 ECTS for their active participation in the TEIMUN conference, even online! For now, this applies to students of the Bachelor programmes in International Relations and International Organization, and Human Geography and Urban and Regional Planning.*

If you wish to make use of TEIMUN’s ECTS agreement, you have to take care of all the relevant administration by yourself. Furthermore, make sure that you apply to the TEIMUN conference, and complete all the administrative steps, before the relevant deadline set by your degree programme.

BSc Human Geography and Urban and Regional Planning Students

To make use of TEIMUN’s ECTS agreement, students of the Human Geography and Urban and Regional Planning programme must enroll for the course ‘International Negotiation’ (GEIN) via Progress. Afterwards, you follow the instructions set forth in your course manual, and/or by your lecturer.

*In some cases, other Bachelor and Master students at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences may also be eligible. If this interests you, please contact us via info@teimun.org.
