FAQs

If you signed up before December 16 and have paid your delegate’s fee you will be recognized in the first round of allocations. Allocations will probably be send out at the end of December, so if you signed up and paid, we will get back to you with your country assignment then.

In case you did not receive an email from us confirming your application, please make sure to check your spam folder. Even if you did not receive the automated message, you can still participate.

Yes, you may still participate. If you already transferred the money to our bank account, it will take up to 3 weeks for the university to confirm your payment to us. Only after this can we affirm your participation at MainMUN and your payment to you.

No, travel expenses to, from and during the conference are not included in the fee.

No, accommodation is not included in the participant’s fee. You can check out our page “Accommodation” for recommendations for hostels/hotels.

Since MainMUN is a MUN for everyone, from beginner to expert, we decided to wait to send out assignments until after our first registration period ends in December. One way to make sure you will receive your assignment right after that period is to pay your participation fee right after you register, since it takes a while until we receive a confirmation from the university about your payment.

This depends on your committee and your chairs. Your Chairs will contact you after you receive your country and committee assignments and they will let you know the details. Beginners usually do not need to write Position Papers but we advise them to do so, since they prove to be a good way to prepare yourself for the conference.

We try out best to give everyone at least one of their three choices, however, with the number of delegates we have at our conference, this is not as easy as it seems. The country assignments are distributed on criteria in the following order: choice of committee/country, experience, letter of motivation and diversity. This process will happen to all three of your choices until we assign you. Depending on the committees and countries you pick, it may be possible that we will not be able to provide you with any of your choices because they may be very popular or you might not have the necessary experience for that committee, that is what the country/committee preference in our applications is for. If you choose committee, we will at least try to put you in your favorite committee and if you choose country, we will try the same for your favorite countries. In case you do not like your assignment, we would like you to keep an open mind about it. It is often the countries that do not pop into mind right away, that prove to be the most of fun. If you are really upset about your assignment, you can contact us at info@mainmun.de and we will do our best to make you happy.

No, we do not have awards at our conference. We discuss this topic every year in our team and so far, every year we have decided against awards. The reason is simple: MUNs are supposed to be a fun way to learn more about politics and diplomacy while meeting new people from all over the world. We, the team of MainMUN, think that awards often turn the conference into a competition, and we oppose that idea.

Yes, every delegate, NGO member and journalist will receive a certificate for participating if they attend the majority of sessions.

Yes, of course you can still participate. If you already know that you will miss some session, please let us know (either in your application or send us an email) so we can plan ahead.

No, unfortunately transferring the money into account is the only way to pay your fee.

Yes, you can sign up as a delegation for MainMUN. Just state the name of your delegation in the corresponding field of your application. The head delegate or faculty should check the matching box upon registering.

Signing up as a delegation requires a head delegate or a faculty advisor. These are responsible for the members of their delegation and their registration. Due to the high numbers of delegates we cannot check if your delegation has signed up completely. The same goes for the registration fee.

Yes, this is possible, just state the name of your delegation in the “reason of payment” field on your transfer.

All participants are required to dress in “Western Business Attire” during the day. It is advised to wear comfortable shoes as a journalist. The socializing events have their own dress codes. These can be found in the description of the events.

At MainMUN we try to satisfy everyone’s hunger. We usually offer two meal choices, an omnivore and a vegan option. If you have any special dietary restrictions, please fill out the corresponding field upon application and we will try our best, to find something for you.

Yes, you may still be a part of the conference as soon as we receive your payment. Depending on the time of your payment it can happen that you might miss the first/second/third round of allocations, so your preferred country/committees might be gone already when we try to assign you, but you are still able to participate.
