Training course

To benefit the most from a MUN, participants are required to possess specific knowledge and operational skills. Consules has therefore created a specific training program divided in several modules. The modules may be held in-class and/or through a designated learning platform. The platform will also be used to upload research material and to monitor the students’ academic performance.
Training program
The training program is divided into several 3-hour long modules and it’s held entirely in English.
Diplomacy and Research Methods

This class is an introduction to the methods and main features of international diplomacy. Participants learn how to conduct their research activity on the topics of the simulation and how to write complex documents like position papers.

Negotiation techniques

This module introduces the participants to the art of negotiation. The focus is on the main strategies that negotiators use to reach a compromise with counterparts. Students will learn how to gain the support of other actors on their proposals, how to create alliances and how to deal with the opposition.

UN Resolutions

Core objective of this module is the development of legal drafting skills through a deep analysis of UN documents and acts. This activity will allow students to understand structure, content, typical lexicon and vocabulary of UN Resolutions.

Intro to the United Nations

The module is an introduction to international law, its focus is the UN and how it operates. The principles that regulate the United Nations’ activity are analyzed, with particular reference to peacekeeping, sustainable development and protection of human rights.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking class focuses on how to create a powerful speech and on the communication tools necessary to speak in public. Students learn how to interact with others in an international professional context.

UN Rules of procedure

The aim of Rules of Procedure is to explain to the delegates how a complex organization like the United Nations works. Through the understanding of the rules, students learn how to reach a political goal while respecting formal regulations.


Individual work
Each module of the training course requires each student to work independently on the Cloud platform. Following the learning by doing teaching method, participants are required to put into practice what they have learned in the single modules by doing exercises and writing complex documents.
