Applicant's suitability for PROMYS Europe

We would appreciate any comments you can make that might help us determine if the applicant would benefit from the PROMYS Europe experience. Because of the highly intense nature of our programme, we are especially interested in the applicant’s motivation and potential for sustained hard work on challenging mathematical themes.

To be successful at PROMYS Europe, students do not need to have taken advanced courses in mathematics or participated in mathematics competitions: some have had those experiences and some have not. To be successful at PROMYS Europe, students need to have the desire and ability to think deeply about fundamental mathematical principles.

Since PROMYS Europe is a residential programme in which many participants will be living away from home for the first time, we would also like to know your impressions of the applicant’s emotional maturity. 


I confirm that the information I have given is, to the best of my knowledge, true and accurate.

I understand that the data collected from PROMYS Europe application materials is used to enable the applicant's participation in the PROMYS Europe programme, and is held securely by the PROMYS Europe partnership, in accordance with UK data protection legislation. The data will be retained only for as long as is necessary to facilitate these purposes. 

PROMYS Europe is a partnership between the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI); the University of Oxford Mathematical Institute; Wadham College, University of Oxford; and PROMYS Europe's parent programme: PROMYS at Boston University, USA.
