The Model United Nations (MUN) simulates the United Nations forum, with each student representing a country in debates about a range of issues from health and social progress to the economy and global finance.

MUN is an extracurricular association where students can step into the shoes of a United Nations delegate to research and debate solutions to some of the world's most pressing global challenges.

Taking part in the MUN initiative is an excellent opportunity to learn about international issues, diplomacy and inter-government relations, and develop your skills in critical thinking, research and debate.

At CUD, the MUN committee meets on a weekly basis to discuss different global challenges, with each student presenting their country's stance, and working with their fellow delegates to debate and collaborate on workable solutions to current international concerns.

Creating and maintaining a healthy balance between your academics and personal life can be a stressful experience. Our Student Counselor is here to guide you through this process and help you overcome challenges, find clarity, build resilience, and reach your goals. She has professional experience and training and is committed to a strengths-based, solution-focused, and multicultural approach to allow you to fully benefit from your university experience and become the best version of yourself.

Common issues university students face include stress, anxiety, time-management, motivation, self-esteem, life transitions, and identity development. With personal counselling, you are given a safe and nonjudgmental environment to discuss, understand, and effectively handle these issues, and any others. While counselling is offered, referrals are provided if further or long-term services are needed.

All sessions are strictly confidential.

At Canadian University Dubai, we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment for students of determination and students with disabilities. If you have a documented physical disability, psychological condition, learning difficulty, chronic illness, or other barrier to your learning, you are eligible for academic accommodations.

We work closely and with absolute confidentiality with students to accommodate their individual needs and ensure they have equal opportunity to reach their maximum potential. Academic accommodations include exam scheduling and time limit extensions, note-taking support, learning resources, and a distraction-reduced environment. These are handled on a case-by-case basis that takes into account the student’s unique needs and the course or programme learning objectives.
