Program Description

Master of Taxation Studies

University of Auckland Law School

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.

Programme structure

Students can study full-time or part-time to allow flexibility for those with other professional or personal commitments.

The 120-point taught masters can be completed within two consecutive semesters (one year full-time) or up to eight consecutive semesters (four years part-time).

The 120-point research masters can be completed within two consecutive semesters (one year full-time) or up to four consecutive semesters (two years part-time).

Where could this programme take you?

The inclusion of a major in Taxation as a specialist subject in your degree offers a range of professional possibilities. Tax as a career is less subject to the normal business cycles, and demand for tax professionals is always strong.
