UNISCA: MUN of Amsterdam
UNISCA is not a regular university course. It is a two-week Summer Course consisting of two parts. The first week of this course focuses on theoretical knowledge of the United Nations and contemporary global issues discussed within this organization. In this part of the course, guest lectures will be given by professionals and academics from within relevant fields.
The actual Model United Nations (MUN), an academic simulation of the United Nations, will take place in the second week of the Summer Course.

In these specific Committees various issues are discussed and resolutions are to be written. As a journalist, all the events will be reviewed, reported and commented upon by your Press Department via a daily newspaper.
