The MSc in Accounting and Taxation is a unique programme designed to offer you a high-level academic understanding of contemporary developments in taxation policy and practice, together with accounting, both in the UK and in an international global context.

In short, our aim is to give you the best possible preparation for a long and successful career in accounting with a specialisation in taxation.

Core modules in taxation are accredited by ACCA and alongside traditional accounting subjects, we cover all aspects of taxation including policy development and implementation, and practical operation of tax systems in the UK and overseas. You will gain an understanding of a broad range of topics and a variety of optional modules gives you the chance to specialise if you choose to do so, early on in your career.

You also have the opportunity to combine your studies with ADIT, an international tax qualification delivered by the Chartered Institute of Taxcation (CIOT). ADIT is an advanced level designation in cross-border tax. Designed by a board of world-leading experts, it has been created to provide the robust foundation in international tax that today’s professional needs to stand out from the crowd.
