How Mindvalley University Works
6 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) and Tallinn (2018) and this year, we’ll see you in Pula, Croatia.
2The One-Month Calendar
Spend one month of your year at MVU 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 from college?
3The Curated Community
MVU brings together people of all ages, whether 8 or 80. 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 The skills that truly lead to happier lives and not outdated societal ideas of ‘success’.
5The Incredible Teachers
Our teachers are the ones on the TED stages, writing best-selling books, or building extraordinary companies. These are the teachers we bring to City Campus. This is the education regular college forgot.

How Mindvalley University Started – A Quick History
We’ve always believed that education should be accessible in as many formats as possible. 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. There was so much attention that legendary speakers and world-class educators like Neale Donald Walsch, Wim Hof, Lisa Nichols, and Verne Harnish came down to collaborate on the project.
One year later, led by Kadi Oja, Mindvalley was held in Tallinn Estonia. This time, fueled by word-of-mouth, 1100 people moved to Tallinn. Teachers like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Shefali Tsabary, Jim Kwik and Steven Kotler came down to teach. And the event hit a new level.
Since 2017, we’ve held MVU in Barcelona, Spain and Tallinn, Estonia. In fact, we were one of two winners recognized by the City of Tallinn and the Estonian Convention Bureau for organizing the most innovative conference in Tallinn in 2018.
This year, we’ll be bringing our rotating campus to Pula, Croatia with 1,500 amazing people enrolled from around the world. Come join us!
