Worldview Education Fair is dedicated to helping institutions recruit prospective international students from Tunisia. This fair is open to all institutions worldwide, helping you meet and recruit a wide pool of quality potential students.
Many fairs and exhibitions focus only on recruiters from a specific country, thereby attracting a limited pool of students with predetermined interests in those specific study destinations. The Worldview Education Fair brings institutions from all around the world to one place; giving students more opportunities and options, thereby attracting a larger, more diverse pool of students. For recruiters, this exhibition provides an opportunity to improve their reach and brand awareness; marketing to a larger number of students and alongside some well-known institutions.
The Worldview Education Fair 2018 will take place at the TBC in Tunis, Tunisia and is a one day event open to all institutions worldwide, drawing a larger pool of students by giving them several options to fit their price, location and course requirements. Students are encouraged to come with all the necessary documentation in order to allow them to make immediate applications to institutions.

It may be but a slim wedge of North Africa’s vast horizontal expanse, but Tunisia has enough history and diverse natural beauty to pack a country many times its size. With a balmy, sand-fringed Mediterranean coast, scented with jasmine and sea breezes, and where the fish on your plate is always fresh, Tunisia is prime territory for a straightforward sun-sand-and-sea holiday. But beyond the beaches, it’s a thrilling, underrated destination where distinct cultures and incredible extremes of landscape – forested coastlines along the coast, Saharan sand seas in the south.
Since gaining independence from France in 1956, Tunisian education officials have been working to develop an education system that is responsive to the needs of a rapidly developing country, while also emphasizing the need to develop a distinct national and regional identity. Building on the French model left behind, the focus of education reformers has been to “Arabize” curriculum and faculty at the nation’s schools and universities while producing a skilled Tunisian workforce that is able to build and manage a modern economy. The Education Reform Law of 1958, therefore, emphasized technical and vocational education, and the training of a corps of Tunisian educators qualified to teach a new uniform school curriculum emphasizing Arabic language and literature, Islamic thought, and the history and geography of the Tunisian and North African region.
Just under 20,000 Tunisian students are studying abroad, with almost half of these in France. Other countries with good numbers of Tunisian students include the US, Germany, Italy and Canada. It’s estimated that over 60% of the Tunisian population speaks French, which combined with historical ties between the two countries, accounts for the large number of Tunisian students in France. Canada, and in particular French-speaking Canada also sees good numbers of Tunisian students. One of the key drivers for Tunisian students to study overseas is the unemployment rate, which at 30%, is the highest in the MENA region. Students returning to Tunisia with an international degree have a tremendous advantage
Maghrebi, Mediterranean and European: Tunis is at once complex, hybrid and cosmopolitan. Following the revolution of 2011, Tunis has begun to move out of the shadows, showing its North African neighbours that it has all the right ingredients to jump back on the traveller's to-do list. Emerging from a dictatorship and previous security issues, Tunis is finding its feet and its voice, proving to tourists that it is the safe, friendly city many know it to be. Tunisia's laid-back capital has two distinct urban-planning personalities. The new city, created by French colonials in the 19th century, is an orderly European grid, with wrought-iron balconies, cafes and patisseries bordering the palm-lined boulevards. Passing through Port de France, leave the European side behind and enter the labyrinth of the medina, dotted with old palaces and antique shops. However urban Tunis might feel compared with the rest of the country, you are never far from the beach. The suburbs stretch endlessly out along deep-blue seafronts, an eclectic mix of Carthaginian ruins, stunning villas, beach bars and fishing ports. These areas surrounding the city Centre are some of Tunis' crown jewels and where in summer everyone walks in search of a breeze.
