PROMYS Europe 

PROMYS Europe is a partnership of PROMYS, Wadham College and the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and the Clay Mathematics Institute. It is a programme designed to encourage mathematically ambitious secondary school students to explore the creative world of mathematics. Competitively selected pre-university students from around Europe gather at Wadham College, Oxford for six weeks of rigorous mathematical activity.

PROMYS in Boston

PROMYS Europe is closely modelled on the very successful PROMYS programme at Boston University. Professor Glenn Stevens, who founded the Boston programme in 1989, is also the founding Director of PROMYS Europe.

Covid-19 Update

PROMYS Europe 2021

Following cancellation of PROMYS Europe 2020, we are working on reviewing programme options for PROMYS Europe 2021 and will update this website as plans become more definite.

As ever, we hope all the friends of PROMYS Europe remain healthy, and please do stay in touch.



PROMYS is all about exploration and learning through experimentation, building the tools to ask and then tackle progressively more difficult and interesting questions. This makes the work deeply satisfying, because the results one discovers not only feel but truly are deep and meaningful mathematics.
