The University of Kent has been represented at international Model United Nations conferences since 1998 when a small group of students went to Brussels, Belgium, to participate in Harvard WorldMUN. Over the next five years, delegations to MUN conferences in in Greece, Turkey, Egypt and cities across the UK was organised privately by a small group of interested students at the University.
In 2004, a group of these MUN enthusiasts decided that the time was right to formally establish a Model United Nations organisation in Kent, and give more students at the University the opportunity to become engaged. From the get go, the organisation experienced a rapid growth in membership as well as well as in success at MUN conferences all across the world. Thanks to the help of its partners and the wonderful contribution of its members, KentMUN was able to develop into an award-winning society that was not only focused on producing skilled delegates, but also broadening the mindset of its members.
Over the course of the last decade, the society has achieved unprecedented success in its activities by winning large number of awards at both the Oxford International MUN, London International MUN and Harvard WorldMUN. The society enjoys an excellent reputation in the MUN scene as well as outside. Many of its alumni have gained enormously from their experience as a member and have started promising careers in the world’s leading firms and companies.
Since the foundation of Kent Model United Nations Society, we have been committed to attracting ambitious and promising students at the University of Kent to participate in MUNs around the world. Our society is therefore founded on two cornerstones: friendship and excellence.
