Important to Know for Attending Mindvalley University


Why is the Mindvalley University postponed?

Due to the current global crisis, we have decided to postpone Mindvalley University 2020, which was due to take place in Amsterdam (July 13 – Aug 2, 2020) to now take place in Tallinn, Estonia 2021. The pre-booked dates are July 12 – August 1, 2021.

We are going into unprecedented times for our generation and we simply don’t know how the world is going to change over the next six months. We take the safety, the physical and mental health of our employees AND our community extremely seriously, and therefore didn’t feel it would be responsible for us to bring our community and their families together in Amsterdam — even if travel restrictions were to be lifted.

However, we are thrilled to share that we will host Mindvalley University 2020 virtually so that we can continue helping our community grow, expand and transform during these challenging times.

  • Can individual and corporate customers get a VAT refund?

    Individual customers: These customers will not be able to get VAT refund from their purchase of event tickets. This is mainly because VAT is a “customer” tax.

    Moreover, tax-free sales in the EU only relate to goods/products and not to services received in the EU. Mindvalley events are categorised as ‘sales of services’.

    Corporate customers: VAT refunds eligibility for corporations depend on their country taxation laws, policies, their residence status amongst many other rules that apply towards VAT refund and processing. Several websites such as this -> Click here act as a good reference check on the process. We also recommend checking with your local tax authorities and familiarising yourself with the VAT refund process or checking with your finance representative for the same.

  • Are you planning any activities for youth under the age of 18 years?

    Absolutely! We’re working on putting together the curriculum and program for nursery (3-5), kids (6-12), and teens (13-17) for Mindvalley University. You can expect to see the outline of the program by the beginning of 2021. There are 1, 2 and 3 week tickets available for all age groups. Please see the question ‘How much are the tickets for family members and kids?’ for pricing details.

    Please note: Nursery, kids and teens programs are in English. It’s important that each young person attending the program has a good understanding of the English language and can communicate proficiently. The program is not meant as an English language study programme. The 3-5 year olds group is a bit exceptional as the kids are very young and might not be fluent in a foreign language, but please note that all of the activities are carried out in English.

    We aim to create flexibility in the age groups. If the head teachers feels that a child should be moved to a different age group, there will be some flexibility here, depending on availability in the groups.
