Application Process:

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.

Lectures, discussions, and problem sets are in English. Applicants should possess English language skills which are strong enough to enable full participation. It is the responsibility of students to check, and to comply with, any visa regulations which may apply to them.

The application process will include a challenging problem set, a teacher recommendation form, and an application form which includes short essay questions about interest in attending PROMYS Europe.

Students who are eligible for PROMYS Europe may apply either to PROMYS Europe or to PROMYS at Boston University. They may not apply to both for the same summer.

If you have any questions, please contact us at


Returning students:

Pre-university students who attended PROMYS Europe in one year and who wish to return in a subsequent year follow a different application process; they are required simply to complete a brief application form.
