An education built for global explorers

The role of a university education is to prepare students to thrive as leaders and innovators. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is more important than ever that students experience and engage with different cultures and backgrounds throughout college.

Minerva is a truly global university program. Students spend freshman year living in San Francisco and then travel with their classmates to a different city — Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul, Hyderabad, Taipei and London — each subsequent semester. At Minerva students, don't live in an isolated campus bubble studying the world from afar, they experience it first hand, using these world-class cities as their classroom and campus.

Take the First Step

No SATs or other standardized tests

No application fee

Minerva's unique and exclusively meritocratic admissions process evaluates student potential rather than opportunity. As a result, the Minerva student body is the most diverse in higher education with approximately 80% of students coming from outside the United States. 

We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2018 enrollment. If you are interested in applying for a subsequent class, you may begin the first part of the application on our website, and we will reach out to inform you when the admissions process reopens.
