Tunisia: A Prime Southern Mediterranean Destination

msb-tunisia01Tunisia is located at the heart of North Africa. Packed with history, culture, and beautiful landscapes, Tunisia enjoys a strategic location in the heart of the Mediterranean with frequent daily flights to and from major cities in the region. It is only a one-hour flight away from Marseille, Rome, and two hours away from Paris.

Beyond being a crossroad of civilizations, the country offers a mild Mediterranean climate, superb sandy beaches, spectacular desert scenery, and wealth of historical sites dating back nearly 3,000 years to when the ancient city of Carthage dominated the entire western Mediterranean. The country’s climate makes it a favorite touristic destination for many Europeans.

Summer is at its hottest between June and August. This is the best time to enjoy Tunisia’s beautiful white sand beaches. The coldest months are from December to February, an ideal time to visit the south, or even the north west, for an escapade in the mountains.

Leader of the Arab Spring, Tunisia is a small country with a large impact. Emblem of the emancipated Arab woman, Tunisia has been at the forefront of women empowerment, education, and progressive political reform.

From the ancient city of Carthage, to the hills of Sidi Bou Said, to delicious spicy dishes, studying in Tunisia will introduce you to a beautiful mosaique of cultures like you have never experience before.
