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 participating in PROMYS Europe. 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.
