2020 Programme

Dates: 12 July to 22 August 2020 

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

It is with great sadness that, due to the worldwide crisis with regard to Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Board of PROMYS Europe has reluctantly concluded that that we will not be able to run PROMYS Europe 2020.

We very much appreciate the time and effort students have put into their application. To this end we are running the selection process as planned and will be in touch to let students know what the outcome of their application would have been had the programme gone ahead this summer. We hope to let students know by the end of April, as circumstances allow.

We look forward with hope and enthusiasm to running PROMYS Europe 2021 as normal, and we will update this website with news as things become more definite. Until then, we hope all the friends of PROMYS Europe remain healthy, and please stay in touch.
