PROMYS Europe, a challenging six-week residential mathematics summer programme at the University of Oxford, UK, is designed to encourage mathematically ambitious students aged 16+ to explore the creative world of mathematics. Participants (who come from across Europe) tackle 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.  Past guest lecturers have included Professors Sir Andrew Wiles, Sir Roger Penrose, Ben Green and Simon Singh.

Applications open early in January and close mid-March.  PROMYS Europe is dedicated to the principle that no student should be unable to attend for financial reasons, and full and partial financial aid is available.  PROMYS Europe is a partnership of PROMYS, Wadham College and the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and the Clay Mathematics Institute.
