In addition to pattern-drafting and fashion design courses that constitute the major part of their training program and the core of their future professional career, students benefit from general courses to better understand the business environment and regulatory framework within which they are expected to evolve in the future: culture fashion, textile technology, industrialization, marketing, etc..
Classes are held from Monday to Friday with a twenty hours/week schedule for the single pattern-drafting or fashion design training program and a thirty hours/week schedule for the dual pattern-drafting and fashion design training program.
PROGRESS AND KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT
Students are assessed through a continuous monitoring system resulting in an annual and a year-end examination review averages. The ratio of the two averages should not be less than 10 to pass to the upper class. Remedial sessions may be available under certain conditions. Only students who fulfill relevant requirements will have their Diplomas signed by the competent Ministry.

CLIMATE AND CLOTHING
Tunisia has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and few cool rainy days. Because of the humidity, it is recommended to bring warm clothes more suited to a humid climate than to fight against cold.
Summers are dry, often very hot and sometimes extend to the end of October. It is therefore recommended to bring summer clothes, preferably cotton made.
