Vasily Khodakovskiy is a 2nd-year student of the Master's programme 'Modern Social Analysis'. During this time, he managed to go on a mobility programme to Italy.

In this article, the Winter School last year's participants told our editorial board how participation in the event helped them enter master’s degree programmes.
