Master

Specialisation International and European Tax Law

Are you an analytical thinker? Are you interested in tax law, business, finance and politics? And can you see yourself advising international companies or private individuals on international tax issues? Then why not study International and European Tax Law? In addition to corporate taxation and international tax planning, you’ll study a broad range of related economic, legal and social topics. The programme is taught entirely in English, but if you’re a Dutch student, you can take an advanced Dutch course in corporation tax that will allow you to meet the membership requirements for the Dutch Order of Tax Advisors. The demand for tax law specialist outnumbers the supply, so upon graduation you'll find yourself in an excellent position. Almost all of our students find jobs as legal or financial consultants soon after they have graduated.

On campus, if you can. Online, if you need to

In spite of the current COVID-19 pandemic and all the challenges it poses, we will continue to use the Problem-based-Learning we are so well-known for. Whether you will be able to come to Maastricht or not, we aim to offer you the small-scale, full of interaction education we stand for. Working together in small groups on relevant issues in an internationally-oriented setting remains at the core of our education.

Read more about the ‘on campus at the university if possible, online if necessary' approach of our faculty on the webpage 'Experience Maastricht!'

Additional contact possibilities for prospective master's students

Are you wondering what it is like to study law at Maastricht University? Because of the Corona crisis personal meetings and activities are not possible at the moment. But we are happy to offer you several other options to give you a feel of what it is like to study at the Faculty of Law. It is also possible to arrange a meeting via chat/Skype.

  • When prospective students ask me why they should come to Maastricht, I say: ‘Because it’s the best!’
