The two main branches of the profession are tax advisory and industry on the one hand, and the tax administration and government on the other. Other possibilities include the judiciary, inter-governmental organisations such as the OECD, United Nations and the European institutions (such as the European Commission), and academia. This programme also provides an ideal basis from which to embark on a PhD.
Please note that, with regard to the ADIT qualification (Advanced Diploma in International Taxation) of the UK Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), students who have written an LLM thesis on a tax law topic may submit this thesis in satisfaction of the ADIT thesis option, subject to approval. Consequently, in order to acquire the ADIT qualification, students then need to pass only two of the three exams, namely Paper 1 and either Paper 2 or 3.
