PROMYS Europe: Summer Maths Immersion at Oxford University

PROMYS Europe is an intensive six-week summer immersion in mathematics at Oxford University for pre-university students in Europe. It is closely modelled on PROMYS, its 26-year-old parent programme at Boston University.

PROMYS are seeking students aged at least 16 who would be excited at 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. The first-year students focus primarily on a series of very challenging problem sets and exploration labs in Number Theory. An advanced seminar and numerous mini-courses, and guest lectures will be on a wide range of mathematical topics.
