Tax Law programme offered at Queen Mary University of London offers a range of international, jurisdiction specific and subject specific modules, all of which are taught by leading academics and practitioners.
The LLM in Tax Law is widely regarded as one of the leading tax programmes in the world. It consistently attracts high-calibre international students from more than two dozen jurisdictions. Their varied academic and professional perspectives enrich the learning experience and provide many opportunities for networking.
In addition, students have the opportunity to take part in events organised by Queen Mary tax law academics, such as the London Alumni International Tax conference, the Avoir Fiscal Anniversary EU Tax Conference and the Summer Tax Programme, as well as workshops and seminars on current issues and developments. These events typically attract high profile practitioners, industry experts, academics and government officials.
The LLM in Tax Law qualifies students to sit the exams for the CTA Direct Tax route. In addition, four modules on the LLM in Tax Law -- International Tax Law, US International Taxation, EU Tax Law and Transfer Pricing -- can be used to prepare for ADIT (Advanced Diploma in International Taxation) exam papers, and a dissertation on a tax topic can be submitted in lieu of the second or third ADIT paper.
The School of Law has consistently been ranked in the top law schools in the UK for the quality of our research and teaching, and many of our internationally recognised staff act as advisers to governments, industry and NGOs, both nationally and internationally.

You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent).
Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify.
