A Year in London

A Year in London

Living in London

Mountbatten participants live in London, not as tourists, but as young professionals undertaking a full-time, 12-month practical training placement, while studying towards an MBA degree, an MA or Postgraduate Certificate. No other programme can provide such an experience; the Mountbatten Institute is unique.

We facilitate a carefully designed training programme that provides an opportunity to learn about British, European and International business practices and to experience the rich cultural diversity of Britain's most populous city. We provide everything needed to succeed as a professional Londoner from the moment of arrival:

  • Professional work placement (practical training)
  • Training allowance
  • Furnished accommodation
  • Health coverage
  • Visa assistance
  • On-going personal guidance and support
  • Special events, excursions and volunteer opportunities
