RegistrationDatabaseCommitteesDuring the Conference



When can we register and when will we find out if we are accepted to participate?

The registration deadlines can be found here. We will review all applications and send out announcements to schools and Student Officer applicants the week after the School Registration (Form I) deadline.

The invitation letters are sent out in April (for BERMUN in November) and in December (for BERMUN2 in the spring).
How do I register Student Officers?
The link for the Student Officer applications can be found in the Delegate section of the website. Please be reminded that a recommendation by the MUN Director is mandatory for each application. Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to submit applications can be found here.
How do I register Court, Press and YA participants?
Once a school has been accepted to participate, students who wish to take part in the courts, Press or Youth Assembly (YA) can submit an application via the link posted in the Delegate section of the website. The deadline to submit applications for ICJ, Press and YA can be found here. Recommendations by the MUN Director may be required. Applicants will be notified via email.
How do I register an ambassador
and what is his/her function?
Each school designates one delegate as (school) ambassador. These selected ambassadors have the task of giving opening speeches in the Opening Ceremony of the conference.

For BERMUN1, ambassadors giving speeches must be in a General Assembly committee and cannot be in any other committee (such as MS MUN, SC, HSC, ECOSOC, SPC, Courts or YA)!

For BERMUN2, ambassadors giving speeches must be delegates and cannot be in participants in the MS MUN or the courts.

Using the MUN Platform, all delegates are encouraged to populate the embassy pages.

Delegates might be asked to briefly join one of the Security Councils or the International Court of Justice, if the country’s policy is relevant to the discussion.

To designate a delegate as ambassador, directors must check the box for the respective student in Form II.
How many delegates can I bring to the conference?
Please note that we generally accept on average 6-8 delegates per school for BERMUN or BERMUN2.

The number of delegates depends on the countries/NGOs you have been assigned – some have one delegate, others have four or more. Directors will be able to see their country assignment and student list in the database once Student Registration (Form II) is available.
What is Student Registration (Form II)?
The Student Registration is a form to enter detailed information about the school, directors, delegates, dietary requirements, arrival/departure times etc. This information is essential. If your school is accepted to participate, you must complete this information by the deadline. A link to Form II is available on our website.
When is the Form II deadline?
Please register all of your delegates before the deadline listed on the Registration Schedule.

I can’t assign committees to delegates
or they are assigned incorrectly.
If you unable to make a specific change yourself, send us an email at and we will fix it for you.
Where do I complete personal information such as
Date of Birth, Food Requirements, etc.?
In Form II, you can find a table with all your participants. Each row has an edit button which allows you to edit all personal information of your delegates. Please make sure the correct food requirements / allergy information is added. Please remember to complete the teacher information as well.
What do I do if a participant cannot travel?
Please let us know by email as soon as you find out that a student (or teacher) cannot travel so we can make manual adjustments to your Form II.


What is the Special Conference and how is it different from the other committees?
The Special Conference at BERMUN is always dedicated to the main theme. As the SpC is not part of the General Assembly, it is in session for all four days, including Wednesday.
What is the Youth Assembly?
The Youth Assembly (YA) is a unique constellation of talented and creative individuals from around the world who are committed to discussing critical global challenges. The multicultural character of this assembly ensures a diversity of opinions based on personal experiences and aims to develop creative proposals and solutions.

The BERMUN Youth Assembly strives to:
- Address current, critical issues of immediate concern to young people
- Channel young people’s passions toward the development of novel projects
- Empower youth to take concrete action at local, national and international levels

For further information, please contact the Youth Assembly Directors via email at
How large are the committees at the conference?
The number of delegates per committee varies and ranges from 15-30 delegates in the Security Councils to 80 delegates in the GA committees.

During the Conference

What is the conference dress code?
Delegates and faculty advisors should dress in a formal manner suitable for an academic conference. This includes a suit, or a jacket and trousers, blouse or shirt and tie, and dress shoes. Skirts must have an appropriate length (at least to the knee is advised).

Sneakers, tennis shoes, military uniforms, jeans, T-shirts, etc. are not acceptable.

Please dress accordingly. The BERMUN Organizers reserve the right to ask participants to change clothes, if needed.
Where are the opening and closing ceremonies held?
The Opening Ceremony will be held at the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung on Wednesday afternoon. Please note that registration takes place at the John-F.-Kennedy School on Wednesday morning. At least one representative from each school must register and pick up conference materials. The Closing Ceremony on Saturday will be held at the Max-Kade-Institute of the Free University Berlin. See Venues for more information.
What are opening speeches?
Opening speeches by the ambassadors during the conference’s opening ceremony should be no longer than one minute. They are both a welcome address and policy statement pertaining to the BERMUN main theme.
Will food be served at the conference?
Yes, a meal will be provided at lunch (Thursday-Saturday during BERMUN1; Friday- Saturday during BERMUN2).
Who are admins and what do they do?
Admins are dedicated students from the John F. Kennedy School, who provide great help before and during the conference. They aid with matters such as setting up, note passing, refreshments, cookie breaks, and organizational matters etc. They can also be contacted for lost and found items.
Is there a BERMUN dance?
Yes, the BERMUN Dance will take place on Saturday evening. Unfortunately, for BERMUN2 we cannot offer a dance.
What should delegates bring to the committees?
Delegates must bring:

- conference package (received during registration)
- writing materials
- official delegation note paper
- policy statements (on the platform)
- laptop or other electronic devices (optional but recommended)
What is the conference language?
The conference is conducted in English. As a bicultural, bilingual school that challenges students to learn and master a partner language, the John F. Kennedy School offers non-English speaking students the opportunity to practice and refine their language skills. It is important to remember that for the overwhelming majority of delegates at this conference, English is a second language. Nevertheless, all delegates must learn the rules of debate and carry out the necessary preparation and research before the conference so that their work in Berlin is productive and meaningful.

Please keep in mind that Security Council delegates must be fluent in English, very well informed about the topics and the current situation in world politics, and must be ready to present their country’s opinion at all times.
