Frequently Asked Questions
If still in doubt, please get in contact with email@example.com.
Who can take part in LSE YouthMUN 2023?
The conference is open to all secondary schools students from Y9-13 (Third-Sixth Form) around the world. University students are encouraged to sign up to our Home Conference also organised by the LSESU United Nations Society, LSEMUN.
What is the maximum delegation size?
There is no "maximum" delegation size. However, schools / organisations planning to bring a large delegation are recommended to apply early to guarantee their spot, as capacity may become rather full at a later stage of registration.
What is the dress code of the conference?
We ask that delegates attend the conference in Western business attire, especially during the Opening / Closing Ceremonies and the High Table Dinner but costumes are allowed for the Crisis Committee.
How can I apply as a delegate?
Delegates are recommended to apply as a delegation (through their faculty advisor), but they could also apply individually subject to a school referral and a responsible guardian accompanying them at all times.
When will I receive my committee assignment?
After registration has closed and all fees have been paid in full. However for some committees priority is given to those who apply early (especially those whose sizes are limited), hence we apply applying early to guarantee your desired committees.
Who can I contact about special assistance?
Please contact the Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will LSE YouthMUN sponsor my visa application?
Delegations and individual delegates are responsible for their own visa applications and any expenses incurred outside this conference, but the Secretariat can upon request produce a signed letter to provide supporting evidence for your application.
Is accommodation and transport arranged for us?
With the exception of the High Table Dinner where shuttle bus to and from the LSE will be arranged, unfortunately not. Delegations and individual delegates are responsible for any expenses incurred outside this conference. However, the Accommodation Support Programme will be available if enough schools show interest (please see What's New).
When are payments due?
After the Application is well received, a member of the Secretariat will be in contact for payment. The deadline is either by the end of the respective round (to guarantee the price offer) or one-week after the payment instructions have been sent (in the case of applications close to the deadline for that respective round).
What is the refund policy?
We only offer refunds for cancellations up to two weeks prior to the conference, subject to a handling fee. The Secretariat will try to offer a partial refund for delegates who cancel last-minute but could provide sufficient evidence for absence, although this is not guaranteed. The booking fee cannot be refunded as it is collected by the LSE Students' Union, not by the Secretariat.
Is financial aid available?
The LSE YouthMUN Scholarship Programme provides a non-means tested fee waiver for delegates who couldn't attend the conference otherwise due to their financial situation. There are 20 spots available, and those interested in applying must do so through your Delegation and a separate application form
