A survey of Tunisians who have graduated from agricultural universities in the United States reveals that students believe that the education they received was relevant and appropriate for the agricultural work that needs to be done in Tunisia. They were well prepared by the Tunisian school systems and felt the level of difficulty of courses to be equal to American universities. Tunisian students believed that their American advisors understood their special needs and requirements and effectively guided their programs. Students generally indicated that their graduate research would not have been possible in Tunisia because of lack of equipment and facilities. A large majority of former students believe that educational programs are a good expenditure of assistance money and should be continued.
