Question & Answer

Grade and Competitiveness
Question: Hi, do you know how good the grades have to be to get into the masters programe? How competitive is it? I have a degree in sociology from Vienna uni, the system ranks from A to E. Overall I have a B in my Diploma and an A in my Bachelors thesis.

Answer: Hi Kevin! Thank you for your email! As I remember, I had a grade average of around 18 out of 20 for both my diploma and Bachelor's  from Iran when I applied for the Master's program. I would say that your grade average is high which is very helpful in getting an admission. Regarding the competitiveness, I would say yes, I suppose the admission process is quite competitive.
