A Year in London
Transform your life and career by living, working and studying in London
What is the London Program?
The Mountbatten Program (formerly Mountbatten Institute) offers a career-defining program for young professionals looking to jump-start their career in a globally competitive business environment.
We welcome successful applicants to London, England every March and August and provide them with an internship in a leading organization, a postgraduate academic qualification and the opportunity to immerse themselves in the history and culture of London.
With 2,000 years of history, world-famous landmarks and a melting pot of nationalities, London is a truly global city, providing an unforgettable year. Whilst you are here we want to make sure that you have the time of your life whilst gaining invaluable professional development. Our hassle-free approach means we take care of the key elements during your year in an international city, including:
- Placing you with a host organization
- Coordination of your visa
- 12-month's rent-free accommodation and utilities
- Academic qualification
- GBP £700 monthly living allowance
- Onsite support
Trainees receive more in benefits than the cost of the Program, making a year in London great value for money, as well as great fun!
Living in London
Our Mountbatten Program Trainees often describe their 12 months in London as the 'best year' of their lives.
The Program provides rent-free accommodation for all our Trainees in central London and roommates from the Program. This shared accommodation is in easy reach of all that London has to offer and provides the opportunity for Trainees to make friends fast.
Find out more about the Mountbatten Program accommodation.
Outside of their internship and academic classes our Trainees like to explore the city and the rest of the UK and Europe, making the most of their #MountbattenLife. From museums to open air markets, trips to France, Amsterdam or Italy, they like to jam-pack their free time and create incredible memories.
Working in London
International experience elevates a resume so we work with leading organizations across London to provide full-time internship opportunities for our Trainees.
