About this course

The Master of Taxation Studies (MTaxS) is designed for both law and commerce graduates who intend to make tax advocacy or tax consulting their career and who wish to extend their understanding of the theoretical issues and legal structures that underpin the taxation system. This programme is an opportunity for graduates to develop, and for practitioners to update and hone, their knowledge of tax law. Courses are scheduled to take into account work commitments and 15-point courses are all taught intensively over three consecutive days (normally Thursday to Saturday). The focus of the MTaxS programme is on tax law, with the technical issues explained by academics and practitioners in the field. The courses cover predominantly legislation and case law applicable to taxation, but also draw from disciplines such as economics and accounting. The new 180-point MTaxS option is now available to professionals with a three-year degree. For more information contact our . For more detailed information on courses avaialble see our
