Embassies

Embassy visit registration has closed.

 

Embassy visits are unique to NCMUN and provide delegates with a chance to go behind the scenes and get a glimpse of how an embassy works and talk to those working in the field of diplomacy, international relations, and public policy.

 

Situated in the nation’s capital, NCMUN provides delegates access to the rich diplomatic community in Canberra. The embassy visits will be hosted by a member of the mission, in some cases this will be the Ambassador or Deputy Ambassador themselves. The visit will consist of a speaker session with a staff member of the embassy talking about an issue topical to their country and their experiences in the diplomatic corps. At the end, there will be a chance for students to ask questions.

 

Once you have signed up, you will receive an email from us within the next week with information about the embassy you are visiting, the time of the visit, and the leader of the visit.

 

If you sign up for an embassy visit, once you are assigned, you MUST attend the visit. Visits are compulsory and it will amount to a breach of the code of conduct if you do not attend them. The various embassies have put in lots of work and time to accommodate us and it is very unprofessional for delegates to sign-up and not turn up. If you do not turn up for an assigned embassy visit, you will be ineligible for winning an award at NCMUN 2016.

 

The sign up form will close at 11:59pm AEST on Monday, September 19th.
