Starting as a student initiative in 1997, UNISCA established itself as a sophisticated and high-quality student conference that attracts ambitious participants from across the globe. It prides itself on establishing an intense and rewarding two-week program. Participants not only get to participate in a thrilling Model United Nations but also expand their horizon intellectually by receiving interesting lectures by renowned speakers. Furthermore, UNISCA offers amazing evening activities where participants make friends for a life-time.

In the first week of UNISCA students will receive lectures on subjects that relate to the topics discussed during the second week the actual conference. Students will write a position paper (essay) before the first week starts, indicating the stance of the nation they represent on the topics at hand. This year, UNSICA is a pass or fail course. In order to be eligible for the 6 ECTS academic credits, the grade (pass or fail) for UNISCA as an official University of Amsterdam subject is determined by a position paper (essay, a participation grade and a presentation during the conference.

Social Activities 

After the thrill of engaging in the conference each day comes to an end, UNISCA offers its participants the chance to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. Although the evening activities are optional, it is highly recommended to join in since they offer the chance for further bonding with the other participants. Furthermore, they provide an excellent yet relaxed setting to expand one's professional network as well as hear about future professional possibilities. 

Alongside helping participants meet each other, the social activities also help the participants get to know the historic and beautiful city of Amsterdam! We organise a range of fun and unique activities like visiting the Heineken Experience for a cold beer or a boat ride through the famous Amsterdam canals for a tan. There is something in store for all. Take this chance to relax, expand your horizon and make friends for life. Visit our conference page for a preliminary schedule of our forthcoming conference!
