Our MTaxS is designed for professionals who wish to extend their understanding of the theoretical issues and legal structures that underpin the taxation system. The programme offers the opportunity for graduates to develop, and for practitioners to update and hone, their knowledge of tax law.
With technical issues explained by academics and practitioners in the field, the courses predominantly cover legislation and case law applicable to taxation – but also draw from disciplines such as economics and accounting.
Our programme provides flexible legal study for both full-time and part-time students. You can study while you work to keep up your professional momentum or go full-time to get to the next level even faster. Entry to the MTaxS is open throughout the year, offering the flexibility you need to accelerate your career.
The MTaxS can be undertaken through coursework or a combination of coursework and research.
