London Met students return from Model United Nations in Prague

A Diplomacy and International Relations student organised a trip to the Model United Nations (MUN) conference in Prague on behalf of London Metropolitan University.

Date: 1 March 2018

Four London Met students attended the Model United Nations Conference MUN Conference in Prague last week.

Guy Maberry, Siani Abrahams, Jennifer Wood and Klara Orackova, who all study International Relations*, flew out to the Czech Republic on 4 February to attend the prestigious four day event.

The MUN conferences provide students from all over the world with an opportunity to practice and develop a range of useful skills, including negotiations, public speaking, strategic and critical thinking, and team work.

Czech national Klara, who is President of London Met’s MUN Society and organised the trip, said: “Travelling for an international conference gave us the opportunity to connect with other students from all around the world and to exchange knowledge, to get to know other cultures and to have lots of fun.

“Prague is so beautiful and I am so happy to have had the chance to show my hometown to my classmates.”

It’s going to be a busy start to the year for London Met International Relations students. In addition to attending the conference in Prague, London Met students will be attending MUN conferences in Edinburgh, Geneva and New York. The University will also be sending a delegate to Europe’s largest MUN conference, which takes place in London later this month.

London Met’s Students’ Union run a number of societies and encourage you to start your own. Find out more on the SU website.
