    What will I study?

    Overview

    Course Structure

    Students must complete eight subjects in total. 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.

    Students must complete at least six subjects from the prescribed lists and may select up to two subjects from those offered in the Master of Commercial Law.

    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, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the subject content. Intensive subjects are typically taught over five days, either from Monday–Friday or Wednesday–Tuesday, excluding the weekend. This intensive format enables students from interstate or overseas to fly to Melbourne to attend class. Semester-length subjects are generally taught for two hours in the evening each week during the semester.

    Subjects are taught in an interactive seminar style and class sizes normally range from 20 to 30 students.

    Duration

    As a student, you will need to enrol in at least one subject per semester and will have a maximum of four years to complete the course, including any leave of absence.

    Study Abroad at Oxford

    Students enrolled in the Master of Tax also have the opportunity to study abroad at the University of Oxford.
