I chose to study Peace and Conflict at Bjørknes University College because I'm interested in international relations and cooperation and Norway is a global center for peace. The classes I took were interesting and engaging because the professors combined expertise in his or her own field with obvious passion for teaching and scholarship. My fellow students also had a hugely positive impact on my experience as they were kind and welcoming, and many became close friends! I would highly encourage other students to look into Bjørknes for a well-rounded mix of high quality academics and fun social opportunities that take place in a vibrant and gorgeous city.
