Course summary

This course is aimed at both lawyers and non-lawyers, and combines intensive engagement with the detail of relevant case law and statute with broader theoretical and inter-disciplinary perspectives. The MSc in Taxation offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of taxation which will encompass perspectives drawn from the fields of law, economics and accounting and will provide students with a thorough understanding of policy issues relating to taxation as well as the technical aspects of the subject, and of an understanding of the relationship between the two. The degree will feature a combination of forms of assessment. Tax Principles and Policy will be assessed by way of an exam in Oxford in January of the first year. Principles of International Taxation will be assessed by way of two 3,000-word assignments. The Tax Research Round Table course will be assessed by way of a 6,000-word essay. Elective courses typically will be assessed by way of two 3,000 word assignments. A 12,000- word dissertation in lieu of two elective courses is also available, with the permission of a programme director. Students will generally pursue careers in taxation law and regulation, accountancy, and economics. The Careers Service provides advice and support for students seeking to pursue careers in a wide range of professions. The Law Faculty has an extensive network of relationships within the legal profession and each year offers a number of talks and events run by law firms and barristers’ chambers. Some firms and organisations have approached the MSc in Taxation group direct to offer internships and other opportunities in the past and we hope this will continue.
