A thought about study in World Heritage sites.

Source: Institute of International Education

According to IIE's latest Open Doors report, 273,996 U.S. students stud abroad in 2010-11.  Although the majority study in Europe, as the map shows, many are going to other continents.

I gather that there are skeptics of the value of such international study, especially of that in non-traditional sites. I was thinking of the utility of study arranged around the nearly 1000 UNESCO World Heritage sites. It seems clear to me that study in these sites could be very appropriate for students in many fields.
