I never received my certificate from BIMUN 2017 or 2018. How can I get it?
First of all, BIMUN only administers certificates from the closure of one conference to the start of the next session. As such, certificates for BIMUN 2018 and prior sessions are no longer being issued.
How do I make payment for the conference?
Payments of delegate fees can be made through our online applications system, using Paystack or designated bank details which will be communicated to successful applicants via mail. Only in highly exceptional circumstances do we accept payment by other means.
What happens after I apply?
Following application, the BIMUN Team will review your application and either approve or decline it. Please note rejections are rare, but may become more frequent as capacity is neared. As we maintain beginner, intermediate and advanced committees, we cater for a wide variety of experience with Model United Nations and debate.
If approved, your application will be given time from approval to make payments for the delegate fees. If the deadline of the early bird opportunity is not met, you are still given opportunity to make payment during the regular registration window. If the regualar registration deadline is not met, your application to BIMUN 2019 will be automatically declined. If payment is made successfully, you will be admitted to the conference. Thereafter you will be given a country of representation in specified committee, to be allocated by the BIMUN Team. Delegates who have paid and been accepted in the early bird window will receive theirs in March, while those for the late registration window will receive theirs in April or May. Each participant will then have time to prepare themselves for the conference, researching their topics and reading BIMUN’s Delegates Preparatory documents.
Can I attend BIMUN alone or do I have to be part of a larger delegation?
You can register as an independent delegate or as a delegation.
I have never participated in Model United Nations before. Can I still attend the conference?
Committees at BIMUN are structured to accommodate delegates from different backgrounds. For this reason you are welcome to attend even if you have little or no experience.
How do I prepare for the conference?
Once allocated a country to represent and a committee to debate in, you will have ample time to familiarise yourself with the topics of discussion and the ways of Model United Nations.
Study guides for the topics debated in specific committee will be made available. BIMUN also has a number of more general help guides to assist delegates in their preparation. All preparatory documents will be sent to successful applicants who have made financial commitment to attend BIMUN 2019.
Can secondary school students attend BIMUN?
BIMUN is a capacity building conference that is staged to help young people such as: High School, Graduate and Undergraduate. We accept students from secondary schools (roughly 50% of the conference) to aid them develop more rigorous thinking.
Can BIMUN provide me with an invitation letter to support my visa application to Nigeria?
The BIMUN Team is happy to assist persons/delegations in obtaining visas to Nigeria in order to attend the conference. Please note this can only be supplied if a delegate has registered, been approved, and made payment in full.
To request one, please email info@bimun.org.ng
Does BIMUN provide refunds?
BIMUN does not provide refunds for persons who paid to participate in the conference and can no longer attend. We do not normally provide refunds to delegates that failed to obtain visas to Nigeria.
Generally, if a single delegate from a larger delegation is unable to attend, he or she can be replaced by another person from their institution and be refunded by the replacement. BIMUN is not involved in such transactions.
Is there a maximum number of delegates I can register in a delegation?
Our online applications system allows you to register as a single delegate. However, if you are part of a delegation, kindly state the name of your delegation in the required field.
