AGS Students Visit to Oslo, Norway
|Monday, 12 November 2012|
Twenty-three AGS students went on a three-day trip to Oslo, Norway, on 2-4 November 2012. The visit was organized by the AGS Graduate Student Association, and brought together students from the Master's in International Relations & Diplomacy and International MBA programs at AGS.
Students walked around the city and visited such sites as the Nobel Peace Center, the Opera House, the Viking Museum, the National Gallery featuring Edward Munch's "The Scream", and Edward Munch's house. They also had a chance to experience Norwegian food and eat reindeer. Kryssandra Heslop, Master's Candidate in the International Relations and Diplomacy program, and co-president of the Graduate Student Association at AGS, says: "The Nobel Peace Prize Museum was my favorite place to visit in Oslo. It was incredibly interesting and moving to read about those who have been nominated in the past but never won, such as Mahatma Gandhi, as well as past winners like Rigoberta Menchú. They also had a lot of cool interactive exhibits that were fun to experience. Overall the trip was a success and it was great to see so many different AGS students come together while exploring Oslo."

The knowledge I acquired at AGS as well as my inter-personal and diplomatic skills, developed during my AGS days, come in handy today when dealing with different government officials, staff from various UN agencies, and even my colleagues in UNESCO who come from different cultural backgrounds.
