How Mindvalley University Works
5 Different Aspects Of Modern Education
1The Rotating Campus
Why restrict college to a singular campus for 4 years? Using tools like Uber and Airbnb, travel and accommodation have never been easier. Plus there are so many amazing cities to explore on this gorgeous planet. Mindvalley University moves to a different world-class city every year so our students get to learn and grow from new cultures and experiences. We’ve been in Barcelona (2017), Tallinn (2018), Pula (2019), and in 2020, we’ll see you in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
2A Flexible 3-Week Calendar
Spend anywhere between a week to the entire 3 weeks at Mindvalley University and go back into your life more enlightened, motivated and happier. And why only join us once? Make it a yearly thing and look forward to reconnecting and growing.
There is no graduation. After all, why would you want to stop learning or say goodbye to the beautiful friendships you’ve formed.
3The Curated Community
Mindvalley University brings together people of all ages, whether 3 or 93. Young people learn from elders while elders learn from youth.. Bring your entire family and experience together the chance to connect, mastermind, and socialize.
Plus go on trips, have adventures, and experience the parties. The greatest thing people often say they got out of college was their community of friends.
4The Upgraded Curriculum
Want to learn engineering or physics? Great! Today you can learn these online for free on MIT.edu or EdX.com. Mindvalley University is not for these skills – but for the skills our regular education system ignored. Like entrepreneurship, leadership, public speaking, personal growth, health and wellness, happiness, love, parenting, mindfulness, and much more. The skills that truly lead to happier lives and not outdated societal ideas of ‘success’.
Dive in and learn around multiple disciplines. Whether you want to learn more about business, speaking, parenting, relationships, entrepreneurship, or anything in between…
There are dozens of sessions to fuel your growth. And with learning across all ages, you’re exposed to multiple perspectives and diverse experiences. This is the education that regular college forgot.

How Mindvalley University Started – A Quick History
When we started thinking about traditional college, we thought about experimenting in a 30-day rotating college experience.
In September 2016, Mindvalley founder Vishen Lakhiani put this idea into action. He wanted his family and friends to experience different cultures and encourage their learning and growth through a different kind of immersive experience. But the idea needed to expand beyond his circle, because moving to a new city for one month can get lonely.
He created a Facebook post inviting all his friends and followers to join him. Over one thousand people replied to the post!
The first location was Barcelona. Over 300 people enrolled within 3 months of Vishen releasing his viral video on how he wanted the project to shift the paradigm of education. Following the overwhelming success of its inaugural year, Mindvalley University would see over 1,000 students enrolled at a time for subsequent iterations of the project as the campus moved to Tallinn, Estonia in 2018 and Pula, Croatia in 2019.
As the project grew, it also attracted worldclass educators such as Neale Donald Walsch, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Wim Hof, Steven Kotler and Jim Kwik just to name a few.
But Mindvalley University didn’t just catch the attention of these high-profile luminaries. The city of Tallinn and the Estonian Convention Bureau awarded us as one of the only two winners for the most innovative conference in Tallinn in 2018.
In 2020, we’re bringing our rotating campus to the international city of Amsterdam, The Netherlands as we look to grow our student body to 1,500 amazing people from around the world. Come join us!
