T/I grad school in a country where B language is spoken

Semi-hypothetical question:

If someone wanted to pursue translation and interpretation in grad school, would it be a good idea to attend school in a country where [one of] their foreign language(s) is spoken?

On the one hand, living in said country for grad school would help cement their language skill, and offer more opportunities for practice than I imagine is typically available in one's country of origin. On the other, it seems like translation exercises would probably occur from their A -> B language, since the other classmates' native language is the student's foreign language.

I've asked a similar question in interlingual with little response.
