M.Sc. by Research in Taxation

The M.Sc. Research in Taxation is unique in the UK. It provides a route to obtain a MSc degree by production of a research thesis of a maximum of 40,000 words over a period of registration of 1 year (full time) or 2 years (part time). The subject matter of the thesis must be related to taxation, but the focus of the specific topic chosen would be by agreement between the student and the supervisors as part of the application and registration process.

The areas of Taxation research undertaken by our staff include:

  • Impact of taxation on the decision-making behaviour of individuals and businesses;
  • role for and development of tax policy (particularly wealth and capital taxation);
  • taxation in global trade;
  • tax education;
  • tax law;
  • tax history;
  • Philosophies of tax.
