Melbourne International Relations Society



Since its establishment in 2012, the Melbourne International Relations Society (MIRS) has emerged as one of the university’s most popular student clubs. Previously known as Melbourne United Nations Society (MUNS), MIRS attracts a diverse array of students from different undergraduate and postgraduate faculties. The club aims to promote student engagement in global issues through a variety of events, from relaxed social events, to robust Model United Nations conferences and consulate visits. MIRS boasts a comprehensive Model United Nations training program, which has culminated in students receiving best delegate and diplomacy awards at numerous Model United Nations conferences, including Harvard WorldMUN. The club also regularly publishes its own magazine, the Melbourne International Relations Review. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in foreign affairs or diplomacy, or just want to meet like-minded people in an accessible and friendly environment, come along to one of our many events and capitalise on all that the Melbourne International Relations Society has to offer!
