I chose the ALGANT programme because I wanted to study abroad. I also considered going to Paris for a year as a great opportunity academically. The ALGANT programme had a great impact on my career. I learned that mathematics is done differently in different places, and it helped me find my place in the mathematical community much easier. The ALGANT programme provides any enthusiastic student with a firm understanding of pure mathematics, and is a perfect place to start a career. After completing the ALGANT programme it is also easier to find PhD positions elsewhere. My advice to people considering the ALGANT programme would be to choose the ALGANT programme if they are interested in pursuing a career in pure mathematics, studying abroad, and meeting different people doing mathematics.
