    The LLM in Tax Law provides a comprehensive programme of study in tax law. It is designed to equip lawyers for the substantive, procedural and technical aspects of tax practice, and to expand and deepen the knowledge base of established practitioners, but no previous knowledge of taxation is required. Modules cover Business Taxation, International Taxation, EU Tax Law, VAT, Intellectual Property taxation, Taxation Principles and Policy and US Taxation. They are taught by leading academic and practitioners, with a strong practical emphasis.
    You will have the opportunity to take part in the annual events organised by Queen Mary tax law academics, such as the London Alumni International Tax conference, the Avoir Fiscal Anniversary EU Tax Conference, the EU Tax Students Conference, Berlin Conference on EU and International Tax and the Summer Tax Programme, as well as workshops and seminars focusing on topical issues and current legislation. These events attract high profile practitioners, industry experts, international academics and government bodies, including the HMRC and the European Commission.

    Professional qualifications

    The LLM in Tax Law is highly regarded by firms looking for tax specialists.
    The LLM in Tax Law provides a fast track to other professional qualifications. The programme will enable you to proceed to the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) examinations, without the preliminary stage of the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) examinations.
    In addition, three modules on the LLM in Tax Law - International Tax Law, EU Tax Law and US International Taxation - can be used to prepare for Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) exam papers and a dissertation on a tax topic can be submitted in lieu of one of the ADIT papers.

    The LLM is available to study full-time for one year or part-time for two years.

    Each of the LLM programmes follows a common format: you will take 135 credits worth of taught modules (examined in May-June) and thereafter you work on a 15,000-word dissertation worth 45 credits (submitted mid August).

    What differs from programme to programme is the range of modules that you are required to choose from. If you wish to take an unrestricted range of modules and any approved dissertation topic you should apply for the Master of Laws.

    Modules:

    To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Tax Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM modules.

    All modules are 45 credits unless otherwise stated.

    Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
