PROMYS Europe, a challenging six-week residential summer programme at the University of Oxford, is seeking pre-university students from across Europe who show unusual readiness to think deeply about mathematics.
Multiple dates from 9 July – 19 August
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 cost of the 6-week course including accomodation, meals and tuition is £1250.
PROMYS Europe is a programme for pre-university students who will be at least 16 years old by the start of the programme. Applicants may be in any year of secondary school or sixth form college including their final year. Students attending state-funded schools, independent or private schools, home schools, and other types of schools are all eligible to apply. PROMYS Europe is open to students ordinarily resident in Europe. In case of doubt about eligibility, please contact the PROMYS Europe office.
The application and application problem set (http://www.promys-europe.org/programme/application ) are available on the PROMYS Europe website ( http://www.promys-europe.org/ ).
The closing date for applications is 19 March 2017
