What is the TEIMUN Society?

The TEIMUN Society allows Groningen-based students to learn about the rules of procedure, debate from the perspective of an assigned country, and delve deeper into the world of Model United Nations. Our trainings are given by the most experienced of MUNers of the TEIMUN family. It is a great opportunity to practice public speaking, negotiating, and policy-making for both beginner and experienced MUN delegates. Furthermore, you can become part of a TEIMUN delegation to MUN conferences all over Europe!

The Training Sessions

The set-up of the sessions is designed in such a way to create an informal but productive atmosphere to prepare you for participating in a TEIMUN delegation. The sessions will be taught and directed by former MUN delegates and with help from (former) TEIMUN Board members. There will be enough time for both debate and socialising. The sessions themselves are free of charge and are a great way to practice and learn very useful skills!

When and Where?

Time: Every Thursday, 19:00-21:00.

Our sessions will be held in the Harmony Building in Gronigen every week. The exact roomnumbers may vary, which is why our committee will be present at the main entrance of the Harmony Building to receive you and show you to the correct room. We’ll be the ones with the large TEIMUN banner!
