Frequently Asked Questions

Registration

How do I register for AIMUN 2019?

AIMUN 2019 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 input all delegates’ information in the online application form accurately and promptly, which can be found at www.aimun.org.cn. 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.

Does the head delegate have to register on behalf of all team members?

Yes. The registration system has been designed to allow the head delegation to take responsibility for his/her delegates.

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

No. 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 for registration is 23:59 (GMT+8), January 20, 2019.

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

We will try our best to reply within 5 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 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?

Delegates from mainland China, please have your head delegate contact contact@aimun.org.cn.

Delegates from all other countries and regions, please have your head delegate contact community@aimun.org.cn.

When can faculty advisors/observers register?

AIMUN will start receiving application for faculty advisors/observers starting from February 1, 2019 to February 28, 2019.

Committee & Country Allocation

When will the committee and country allocations be released?

Head delegates will be notified via email on admission and committee allocations as soon as payment of conference fees have been confirmed. All committee allocations will be completed by January 31, 2019. Country allocations will be released by February 17, 2019, and will be based on each delegates’ performance in the academic test.

Can I choose the country I’m representing?

Country allocation is contingent on each delegates’ performance in the academic test. The academic test per committee will be released by February 4, 2019.

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.

Academic Test

What is the academic test for?

The academic test will measure your basic understanding with regards to your allocated committee and topic. The AIMUN team will base your country allocation on the performance on the academic test.

Do I need to prepare for the academic test?

Basic knowledge on your committee’s functions, history and past resolutions, as well as basic understanding of the committee topic will raise your chances of performing well in the test.
