Frequently Asked Questions

 

Registration

How do I register for AIMUN 2017?

AIMUN 2017 only accepts team applications. Each university should have only one team, and each team should consist of 2 to 8 delegates, with one head delegate. The head delegate should ensure that the head delegate should ensure that all delegates in the team fill in the online application form accurately and promptly, which can be found at www.aimun.org.cn, within 24 hours. A confirmation email will be sent to the head delegate only and the delegate liaison will inform you about the next steps to take. Do contact us regarding your application if you have not heard from us within a week.

Can I form a delegation with a person from another school?

Please look for team members within your school. A delegation only needs to consist of minimally two delegates from a school.

When is the deadline for registration?

The deadline is December 31st, 2016.

When can I expect to get a reply after I submit my registration form?

We will try our best to reply within 3 days, but no later than a week.

Will delegates who register first be accepted first?

We encourage all delegates to register early as the order of registration may affect admission. However, admission also depends on other factors including but not limited to the size of the delegation.

Will delegates with MUN experience be accepted first?

We firmly believe that MUN is a great way to foster cross-culture communication and enhance youths’ understanding of international affairs and diplomacy, and that all students should have the chance to experience and benefit from MUN. Therefore, while processing registrations, the AIMUN team will not discriminate delegates based on their MUN experience (or lack thereof). However, as certain committees have size or other technical constraints, AIMUN will take a variety of factors, including MUN experience, when allocating countries and committees.

If I am informed that I have been put on the waiting list, what should I do?

Please wait for further notice. If there are still vacancies available after January 7, our Directors of Delegate Liaison will contact you via email.

If I am informed that my registration has not been successful, what should I do?

As AIMUN receives a huge number of registrations each year, we regret to inform that not all registrations will be successful due to our venue space constraints. If you have been informed that your registration has not been successful, we seek your understanding. You may continue to follow AIMUN through our Wechat platform or website.

What should I do if I am having trouble with the online registration form?

If you are an international delegate, please have your head delegate contact Choo Yan Ning (chooyanning@aimun.org.cn). If you are from mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan, please have your head delegate contact Wang Jiangying (wangjiangying@aimun.org.cn) and Elizabeth Wei (elizabeth@aimun.org.cn).

 

Committee & Country Allocation

When will the committee and country allocations be released?

Admmission and committee allocations will be released in two cycles: December 5th-9th 2016 and Jan 14th to Feb 1st 2017. Country allocations will be released at the end of February 2017.

Can I choose the country I’m representing?

No. Country allocations are randomly assigned by the AIMUN team.

What should I do if I was not assigned the committee that I wanted?

As we receive many registrations each year and we have size restrictions for a number of our committees, some delegates may not be assigned the committee of their first choice. This is why in the registration form, applicants are asked to select their second and third choice committees. If applicants do not select these options, they may not be accepted. We seek your understanding in this.

How do I know if my payment has been successful?

Will I be able to get a refund if I am not able to come for AIMUN 2017 in the end?

As we handle a great number of delegates each year and our team resources are limited, in principle we will not offer refunds once the fees are paid. Please ensure that you are able to commit to AIMUN 2017 before you sign up for it.

 

Accommodation

How can I book my accommodation?

As the hotels around the AIMUN conference venue tend to be packed during the conference period, we recommend that you book your accommodation as soon as possible.
