The Faculty of Law, in conjunction with the Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation at the Saïd Business School, is pleased to announce that a new part-time Master’s degree (MSc) in Taxation has now been approved by the University for commencement in September 2016.
This innovative, interdisciplinary degree will cover national, European, international and comparative taxation and tax policy. The programme will be directed by Professors Judith Freedman and Glen Loutzenhiser in the Faculty of Law and Professors Mike Devereux and John Vella from the Centre for Business Taxation. They will work with other members of the Oxford team plus distinguished visitors, including Dr Philip Baker QC of Field Court Tax Chambers and other leading practitioners, as well as senior tax academics from around the world. Experts in other areas of law, such as public law, will participate, as will accounting specialists. Students will have a college affiliation, and will take the course over two years, with three one-week residential blocks spent in Oxford during that period, and other teaching delivered in short sessions in Oxford, mostly at weekends. The MSc in Taxation is expected to appeal to a range of students, from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, for whom part time study will be convenient: practitioners in law and accounting firms, those working in revenue authorities, those who are on a career break and considering returning to a tax career and those contemplating an academic career in taxation.
