Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. Students participating in a MUN conference as delegates or chairs will acquire significant skills, as MUN involves and teaches public speaking, debating, research and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork and leadership abilities.


The BISJ MUN society, for students in Y8-IB2, meets after-school on Mondays to complete skills training and conference preparation. Students are then selected to attend conferences within Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and Europe where they discuss and debate challenges facing the world today from water rights to nuclear weapons.

Student performance is recognised by conferences with formal certificates, as well as awards for outstanding individual performances.

In 2022-2023, BISJ MUN Society aims to participate in the following conferences:

16th-19th November – BERMUN – Berlin

19th-21st January – BISMUN - Online
