College. Campus. Curriculum. Community.


The Mindvalley U Barcelona 2017 After-Movie

Help us turn imagination into reality – share this movement with your friends & family:

Education Reimagined For
The Future

Education Reimagined For The Future

In an age of exponential technologies, new models of work and entrepreneurship, location independence, and new definitions of what it means to lead a meaningful life — it’s time to rethink education.

The model suggested here is a re-imagining of college, campus, curriculum and community for a new age.

It’s a month long co-creation where you get to work, learn, and play with an amazing group of inspiring new friends. Plus get taught from the epic teachers in personal growth. Held every year in the cities you dream about visiting.

We call it Mindvalley U.

In the video on the right, Mindvalley founder Vishen Lakhiani shares the vision behind the project.

The message that inspired Mindvalley U.

The ReInvention

Mindvalley U is looking to innovate on seven aspects of education by taking into account new emerging trends.

The Rotating Campus

Why restrict college to a singular campus for 4 years? Using tools like Uber and AirBnB, travel and accommodations have never been easier. Plus there are so many amazing cities to explore on this gorgeous planet. Mindvalley U moves to a different world class city every year so our students get to learn and grow from new cultures and experiences.

The One-Month Calendar

Why live in a bubble for 4 years? Mindvalley U is a one month a year experience that our members come back to for the rest of their lives. There is no graduation. Why would anyone ever stop learning or say goodbye to the beautiful friendships from college? 1 month a year means you can take part in Mindvalley U while still holding a job. Or bring your spouse and kids with you. Spend a month at Mindvalley U and then go forth into the real world for 11 months to work or start a business. Come back each year to reconnect and grow.

The Curated Community

Mindvalley U brings together people of all ages 17 or 70. Young people learn from elders while elders learn from youth. Entire families attend with their kids. A well structured on-the-ground social network arranges that every day is filled with opportunities for our members to connect, mastermind, socialize. Plus go on trips, have adventures and experience festivals and parties. The greatest thing people often say they got out of college was their community of friends. Mindvalley U is designed to expand your social connections like no other experience on Earth.

The Accreditation

None. We don’t believe in it. Mindvalley U is not for students seeking regular jobs. It’s for extraordinary individuals seeking to work on game changing ideas. Your work is your proof. In partnership with new platforms for collaboration that are emerging in Silicon Valley, our members are directly plugged into a network of some of the most innovative humans on earth, and into companies like Nike, Apple and Google which are always seeking new talent and frankly, don’t give a damn about your college degree. (more on this model to be revealed in 2018).

The Cost Savings

By removing the campus and stripping away college from all its inefficiencies from grading to tuition fees to funding research labs, we bring down the cost of Mindvalley U to a fraction of a regular American college. Because Mindvalley U is only one month a year, students are out in the real world for 11 months of the year actually building companies or working — and thus earning money and not going into debt. Students can enroll at as low as $2000 for the base offerings and add upgrades if they wish. This makes it affordable to more people and allows you to customize your experience to your budget

The Upgraded Curriculum

Want to learn engineering or physics? Today you can learn these online for free on or Mindvalley U is not for these skills. Mindvalley U is for the skills or regular education system ignored. Entrepreneurship, leadership, public speaking, personal growth, health and wellness, happiness, love, parenting and mindfulness. And much much more. The skills that truly lead to happier lives and not outdated societal brules of ‘success’.

The Teachers

Universities today might have the greatest researchers in the world, but not necessarily the greatest teachers. So where do you find these teachers? They are the one on the TED stage, writing best-selling books or building extraordinary companies. These are the teachers we bring to Mindvalley U

The Next Location

Join us in the beautiful city of Tallinn in 2018
