Global Round

Those 5 days at the Globals were the most memorable days of my life.

About the Global Round

2000 scholars from over 40 countries: once a year we invite qualifying teams from all over the world to join us for an extraordinary Global Round.

The 2014 Global Round (June 24-27) returns to Singapore for the first time since 2009.

Activities will take place all around the world's most vibrant city-state, from Sentosa Island to Bukit Timah Road. You’ll stay at one of several recommended hotels, from which we'll transport you each day to the different event venues, including Hwa Chong Institution, National Junior College, Singapore Chinese Girls School, and the lovely Star Auditorium at Buona Vista.

You’ll experience scavenger hunts, keynote speeches, panel discussions, our signature Scholar’s Ball, and, of course, all the competitive and community-building events that drew you to the World Scholar’s Cup in the first place, from the Debate Showcase to the Scholar’s Bowl.

Every participant will walk away with new friends, new discoveries, and very large alpacas—and all participating teams will be able to apply for spots at the year-end Tournament of Champions at Yale University.
