Each university should have only one team, but there is no limit to the number of delegates. However, the Secretariat may need to screen the delegates under specific circumstances. Each team should have one Head Delegate who is expected to handle follow-up matters. The Head Delegate should fill in the information of all team members accurately and submit the application form through the AIMUN official website (http://pkuaimun.com/).
Does AIMUN 2023 accept individual applications?

When is the deadline for application?
The deadline for application for ALL delegations is Feb 28, 2023, 23:59 (GMT+8).
Will delegates who apply first be accepted first?
Admission will not depend on the order of application. However, we encourage all delegates to apply as early as possible.
Will delegates with Model UN experience be accepted first?
We firmly believe that Model UN is a great way to foster cross-culture communication and enhance youths’ understanding of international affairs and diplomacy so that all students should have the chance to experience and benefit from Model UN. Therefore, while processing applications, the AIMUN team will not discriminate against delegates based on their Model UN experience (or lack thereof). However, as certain committees have size constraints or certain topics may require knowledge in specific domains, AIMUN 2023 will take a variety of factors, including Model UN experience, into consideration when making admission and allocation.
Can the Head Delegate modify the information after the application is submitted?
To make any changes to previous applications, please submit a new response as soon as possible. We will directly take in the latest application submitted before the deadline.

We welcome applicants from all over the world to apply for any committees you are interested in. However, please note that AIMUN 2023 will adopt a fully onsite mode, and international applicants should make sure that they will have access to Mainland China by the time of the event.

Can I choose the committee to attend and the country to represent?
Admission and committee allocation are contingent on delegates’ preference and performance in the application materials. While the country allocation will depend on the academic test performance of the delegate.
What should I do if I was not assigned the committee that I wanted?
As we may receive many applications and we have size restrictions for our committees, some delegates may not be assigned the committee of their first choice. This is why in the application platform, 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.
What is the academic test for?
The academic test will measure your basic understanding with regard to your allocated committee and topic. The AIMUN team will base your country allocation on the performance of the academic test.
Do I need to prepare for the academic test?
Basic knowledge of your committee’s functions, history, and past resolutions, as well as a basic understanding of the committee topic, will raise your chances of performing well in the test.
