One of the many benefits to the Mountbatten New York Programme is that you get centrally-located, rent-free accommodation for the whole year you are on the programme.
The Mountbatten apartments are located on the Hudson River, directly across from Downtown Manhattan. Many of the apartments have fantastic views of the famous Manhattan skyline.
Travel time on the PATH from the Mountbatten apartments is about 15 minutes to Wall Street and 20 minutes to Midtown Manhattan. With such a short commute our trainees get to spend more time enjoying what 'The city that never sleeps' has to offer.
The community where the apartments are located is called Newport, New Jersey. It is mostly inhabited by professionals working in New York city. Near to the apartments is a mall, cinema, grocery store, gyms, a marina, bars, restaurants and a Starbucks. Newport also benefits from different taxes to NYC so the weekly shop is much cheaper than if it was done in the city. Also, Newport to Newark airport is only a 30 minute journey.
The Mountbatten Institute employs an on-site resident manager who lives within the community. The resident manager is there to assist with any apartment-related queries and to provide support to the Mountbatten trainees.
