KULMUN Membership applications
Current status: Applications for 2017-18 are closed. Thank you very much for the interest!
The good functioning of KULMUN depends on its motivated members who are willing to be active in the association and its related activities. Therefore we are always looking forward at potential new members joining the Association. However due to a restricted amount of members we ask interested persons to participate in an application procedure.
For those willing to get more info about KULMUN activities and membership before sending in their application we organized an info session that took place on Wednesday October 4th, 20.00h, PSI 91.93 (Aula Michotte), Tiensestraat 102.
The application procedure itself consists of the two following tasks:
- Providing a motivation letter + brief discussion on an international topic (max. 1,5 A4) and CV (with ID picture) before the assigned deadline.
- In the letter (English) we would like to get to know more about you, why you wish to join KULMUN and why we should pick you.
- The international topic can be about anything (Myanmar, Ebola, Catalonia, …). You present the framework and your own opinion about it.
- Participating in a short meeting/interview with some current KULMUN members during the weekend of 13-15 October.
After that all applicants will be contacted as soon as possible in order to invite them to the first activity.
If you have questions concerning KULMUN membership and/or the application procedure, we invite you to send those to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Only students which are enrolled at an institution attached to the KU Leuven Association are eligible for KULMUN membership.
Who can apply for KULMUN membership?
Everone interested and motivated is welcome to apply for KULMUN membership. The only requirement is that you are enrolled at an institution of the KU Leuven Association. All those interested can be taken literally as we do not select on field of study, in fact we welcome academic diversity in our association. Furthermore exchange students, even present for only 1 semester, are also encouraged to apply in order to highlight our international character.
How long does a KULMUN membership last?
Once you have passed the application procedure, you automatically become a member for the whole academic year. At the end of every academic cycle, you will be asked if you wish to remain a member or leave the association. As long as you remain a student at the KU Leuven Association, you are eligible to remain a member of KULMUN. Students leaving on Erasmus have the option to vacate their membership and receive it back when returning from abroad.
