Well appointed and more than a home from home!
Much will be required of you during your fieldwork programme in Asia, and having a quiet and comfortable living space was an important criterion for us when we considered the establishment of an Asia/Pacific programme. Our living arrangements should offer a greater level of privacy and comfort compared to the programmes in New York and London. Your hard work and dedication to both your host organization and your academic obligations abroad will be rewarded when you arrive in Bangkok.
We strive to offer each student a single comfortably furnished room (some rooms may be larger than others). All are furnished to very good standard and come with cable TV and internet access, all of which is included. Our apartments are located near quick and reliable transportation and therefore are within easy access to research and teaching areas and the Mountbatten Institute office. Apartments are fully air-conditioned and the Institute will pay your electricity bill. There is a surcharge, however, for those who use excessive electricity. The apartments are all self-catering, although lunch is provided during seminar days. The Institute also provides transportation passes. Security is provided in each apartment building and students are required to sign in guests and visitors.
