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 or even prequalify for spots at the year-end Tournament of Champions at Yale University.
We encourage all participants to stay at one of our three main hotels, all in easy walking distance of the main venue. Special negotiated rates include WiFi and breakfast and can be booked below. Delegations can reserve a maximum of two rooms under one person's name when using the online links.
Impiana KLCC | from 265 MYR (currently sold out) | Book Online | Book Offline
Traders by Shangri-La | from 450 MYR | Book Online | Book Offline

In addition to the three main hotels listed above, we have a secondary group of seven excellent hotels available, starting at 270 MYR and including options such as two-bedroom apartments. These hotels are not directly adjacent to the KLCC but are still in walking distance. Please book them below:
