The Model WTO 2023 is scheduled from the 30th of March to 6th of April 2023 and will hopefully take place on-site.

The topic of the Model WTO 2023 will be announced soon.

The conference is open to all levels of study (Bachelor, Master, Ph.D.), however, you should demonstrate interest and a basic knowledge of the WTO and international trade in general. We believe that a diversity of knowledge is the best option since it reflects the day-to-day business of the WTO.

After your payment you will receive a few documents via email in order to prepare for the conference. We would kindly ask you to read through them as a preparation for the conference to ensure a high level of debate during the conference.

If you experience any connection issues during the conference or you are unable to join the debate, try to use a different Web browser or disconnect from your Wlan for a few minutes and reconnect after that again. If this does not work try to contact us via application@model-wto.org.

The participation fee 450 CHF, includes accommodation and food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the entire week. The fee also covers the activities planned for the conference. 

Costs such as plain tickets, nights out or purchases of items for personal use are to be paid individually. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us via application@model-wto.org

Due to the uncertainty in the context of the Covid -19 pandemic, the probability that the Model WTO 2023 will be held fully online is not excluded. The essence of the event would stay the same, but the following, provisional changes, must be taken into consideration: 

  • 7 day event from Thursday, the 30th of March 2023 to Thursday 6th of April 2023
  • 3 hours of negotiations per day, in addition to social, online activities 
  • Highly reduced participation fee 


The economic and asset situation of the participants is a meaningful criterion for the allocation of financial aid, however, it is very difficult to judge the economic situation of every applicant at an international level, such as this event. For this reason, it is not necessary for the participants to send us, for example, the figures in their financial accounts.
As a help, you can draw on the questions below when writing your essay on your personal situation:
– How do you finance your studies?
– Do you study on a full-time basis?
– Do you do extracurricular activities? Are you in a club? If so, which ones? And if not, why not?
– Describe your personal situation
– Why do you deserve financial aid?
– How will this scholarship help you meet your goals? What are these goals?
