Stay tuned also for some advice about the preparation of the internship report and of the defense.

### Next year.

Most of the M1 students proceed along one of the following paths after validating the M1:

- Study in M2, either at ENS Lyon or somewhere else (in France, abroad).
- Follow a year of preparation for the
*agrégation de mathématiques*.

_{[this is intentionally in french] }Si vous envisagez de préparer l’agrégation de mathématiques l’an prochain, il est conseillé de valider un module de dès cette année. Voir ceci et ceci pour cela.

- Spend a year doing (research) internships, in France and/or abroad.
- Double diplomas (here, and also here for EPFL).

This is something you should keep in mind along the year of M1, and prepare ahead of time.

### Means of communication.

The class representants are L. Assouline, S. Fernandez, U. Léchine and P. Oechsel.
