    Overview

    Course structure

    Students must complete 50 credit points of study from the prescribed subject lists.

    All international students are required to undertake Foundations of Tax Law offered as an intensive in Semester 1 and 2. This subject provides a necessary grounding in Australian common law and statutory law of taxation, enabling a comparison with students’ home country tax systems. It provides the foundation for successful study in the other tax subjects studied in the course.

    Subject timing and format

    The Melbourne Law Masters program has been designed around the busy schedules of working professionals. Subjects are offered from February to December each year. Most subjects are taught intensively over five days with some subjects taught for two hours each week during the semester.

    Subjects delivered online will have a combination of pre-recorded lecture content, live sessions and discussion boards among other resources. On campus subjects involve interactive seminar style classes in the Law Building in Melbourne.

    Class sizes are typically limited to 30 students regardless of delivery mode.

    Duration

    Full time students enrol in 50 credit points per semester (or half year period) and have an expected course duration of six months. Part time* students enrol in 25 credit points per semester (or half year period) and have an expected course duration of one year. Semesters without enrolments require a student to apply for a leave of absence.

    *Part time enrolment is for domestic students only. Part time students may reduce their study load to 12.5 credit points per half year period and thus have a maximum course duration of two years.
