Apply for PROMYS Europe 2017: A 16+ Maths Residential Challenge!
PROMYS Europe is designed to encourage mathematically ambitious students who are at least 16 to explore the creative world of mathematics.
Participants 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.
First-year students focus primarily on a series of very challenging problem sets, daily lectures, and exploration projects in Number Theory. There will also be a programme of talks by guest mathematicians and the counsellors, on a wide range of mathematical subjects, as well as courses aimed primarily at students who are returning to PROMYS Europe for a second or third time.
The programme is dedicated to the principle that no one should be unable to attend for financial reasons. Most of the cost is covered by the partnership and by generous donations from supporters. In addition, full and partial needs-based financial aid is available, which can cover the fee and travel costs, in part or in full.
The application and application problem set are available on the PROMYS Europe website. The deadline for first-year student applications is 19 March. PROMYS Europe 2017 will run from 9 July to 19 August at the University of Oxford.
Six weeks of challenging and stimulating mathematical exploration, for mathematically ambitious school students aged 16+ from across Europe!
“PROMYS is all about exploration and learning through experimentation, building the tools to ask and then tackling progressively more difficult and interesting questions” – Student, PROMYS Europe 2015
Selection is needs-blind and based on merit alone. Partial or full financial aid is available for those who need it. The programme is dedicated to the principle that no one should be unable to attend for financial reasons.
