Programme structure

Major themes of the programme include: 

  • Evaluating the tax policy choices made by states, particularly in the context of cross-border structures and the flow of capital, income and persons. 
  • Examining the interaction among the various forces that shape international tax law - domestic law, bilateral treaties, multinational agreements, inter-governmental organizations, case law and academic writing. 
  • Solving difficult practical case studies and important international tax problems. 

The programme also includes components that allow you to delve into selected issues in depth and, at the same time, develop your professional skills. Writing skills are particularly important and most of the course components conclude with a written exam requiring a number of short essays. You will also be required to write a final paper, giving you the opportunity to define and focus on your own research question. Throughout the programme attention will be paid to the structure of your written work as well as its content.
