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.

PROMYS has done very impressive work over many years in creating an environment in Boston in which young mathematicians from all over the United States can immerse themselves in serious mathematical problems over several weeks, without distraction. It is an exciting development that PROMYS and the Clay Institute have now opened up the same opportunity in Europe.

Sir Andrew Wiles, University of Oxford

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.
