«Bjørknes University College provides close contact between lecturers and students, a good environment to learn and to teach, a fine atmosphere among the students, and the opportunity for in-depth study of the most important topics within peace and conflict studies, including political, institutional, and ethical questions. For me, it’s a great privilege to teach at a college so committed to excellence and to taking care of its students».

«In many ways unique and quite special, the Bjørknes University College programme in Oslo draws on the traditions and expertise that characterise the Norwegian approach to peace building and conflict resolution. Oslo is the home of the Nobel Peace Price and one of the most distinguished Peace Research Institutions, PRIO. Our mission is that students at Bjørknes University College will receive the training and experience necessary to become the next generation of peace researchers who can make a real difference».
Dr. Christopher White, Associate Professor of International Relations
«Our college is extraordinary – students and professors discussing everything from the Nobel peace prize to world history together on our charming little campus in the heart of Oslo. We have renowned lecturers, lively seminars, fun events and intense discussions. My colleagues and I love teaching at Bjørknes University College and I think our students can tell!»
