Global Round

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

About the Global Round

2500 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 2015 Global Round (June 22-26) returns to Kuala Lumpur for the first time since 2011.

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.
