The Postgraduate Certificate in Taxation from the University of London is a new academic qualification in the taxation field. It allows students the opportunity to undertake three modules from the MA in Tax programme and obtain an academic qualification in taxation.
The Certificate enables tax practitioners, government officials, accountants, non-lawyers, and the general public to obtain a specialist tax qualification. Applicants are required to have a first degree in any subject, preferably at 2:1 grade or higher. Applicants without a degree but with relevant professional experience are also eligible to apply and will be considered for admission on a case by case basis.
All students whose first language is not English must be able to provide recent evidence (gained in the last two years) that their written and spoken English language is adequate for postgraduate study. This requirement is specified in order to ensure that the academic progress of students is not hindered by language difficulties and that students are able to integrate socially whilst studying and living in the UK.

The Certificate is designed to interlink with the Diploma in Taxation and the MA in Tax Programme by allowing students who have successfully obtained the Certificate in Taxation to transfer their credits to either a Diploma in Taxation or the MA in Tax degree programme.
The Certificate is also designed to give students the opportunity to obtain a stand-alone qualification in taxation by studying taxation modules from those available on the MA in Tax Programme.
The Certificate may also be useful for students undertaking the Chartered Institute of Taxation's Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) since the EU Tax and International Tax Law modules will prepare students for Papers I (Principles of International Taxation) and III (Principles of Corporate and International Taxation: European Community option). Teaching for these modules is usually held at weekends to allow students to "fly-in" for 12 hours of teaching.
