PROMYS Europe

PROMYS Europe at the University of Oxford is an intensive six-week summer immersion in mathematics for mathematically talented pre-university students. Need-based financial aid and travel reimbursement are available thanks to support from our partners. Applications open early in the year and close at the end of March.

We seek European students aged at least 16 who would benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into fundamental mathematical questions within a richly stimulating and supportive community of fellow first-year students, returning students, undergraduate counsellors, research mentors, faculty, and visiting mathematicians. First-year students focus primarily on a series of very challenging problem sets, daily lecture, and exploration labs in Number Theory. Advanced seminars and numerous mini-courses and guest lectures tackle a wide range of topics. Guest lecturers in 2015 included Professors Sir Andrew Wiles and Ben Green.
