About the country

Location of the place

Tunisia is in the north of the Africa. It is a Muslim country. Tunis is a former colony of France and many people here speak Arabic and French


Tunis is the capital and the largest city of Tunisia. Around the eastern part of Tunis is the sea and there are many beautiful beaches. Public transport is chaotic in Tunis and it is better to take taxis which are everywhere.

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Every weekend, there was a trip organized by IAESTE Tunisia for example Djerba, Tabarka or Hammamet. We also went to sightseeing in Tunis such as Medina, Cartago, Sidi Bou Said.



I worked at Proddesign It is a small company that focused on interior design. There was one boss, two employees and one other intern.

Work description

During 6 weeks I worked on two projects. The first project was to design the administrative part of the industrial hall. And the second project was to design the interior of the store.

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

My salary was 450 TND for month. I paid 150 TDN for accommodation. If only accommodation, food and transport were paid from the salary, it would be enough. Food on the street costs around 7 TDN and public transport costs 1TDN.
If you want to go on trips, you will need extra money. One-day trips cost around 50 TDN. The South Trip cost 500 TDN.

Language requirements

Young people speak English very well. At work, my boss spoke English and my colleagues tried to speak English.
Tunisia is a French colony and most people also speak French. French is a advantage because older people don't know English.

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

I paid 150 TDN for accommodation. We were accommodated in flat for 5 people. The flat had kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms.

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

IAESTE members from Tunisia spent their free time with us. During the week, they went to bars with us or went sightseeing with us. They organized trips and other activities for us on the weekends. Every evening we could spend time with other interns in the main room where we watched a movie, sang karaoke or played games.

Meeting other foreign students

All foreign trainees were accommodated in one building block so I met a lot of new people from different countries all over the world and made new friends.

Sport and culture

Tunisians are very friendly and kind. I had the opportunity to celebrate their biggest Muslim holiday with a family from Tunisia. It was a great experience and I am very grateful for it. I also got to know more about Muslim culture and tasted their traditional food.

Food, local specialties

Typical dishes are very spicy they add spicy Harrisa to everything. I enjoyed their Makaloup it is similar to sandwich and it is very tasty and cheap.

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

Social websites, mail, phone

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

If you go to Tunisia in summer, be prepared that summer is very hot so don't forget sun protection.

What not to forget with you

Sunscreen (the sun is strong during the day). Czech souvenirs. if you want to visit the mosque, don't forget a scarf to cover your hair. Also you can buy all things at Carrefour.

Benefits of the internship

I met a lot of new people from different countries all over the world and made new friends. I gained experience designing in another country and learned more about architecture and traditions in Muslim countries

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

They were very helpful, organized many trips for us, took care of us. And they tried to make us feel comfortable.

Overall experience with IAESTE

I am very grateful to had the opportunity to spend my internship in Tunisia. It was a great opportunity.
