Access to leadership programs, specialist facilities and industry placements give you a competitive edge in the job market.
It’s important for any business to be able to navigate the complexities of taxation law, so having knowledge in this field will enhance your employability and also provide a good foundation should you wish to operate your own business in the future.
This specialisation comprises four taxation units that provide in-depth knowledge of taxation to complement your overall area of study. It will introduce you to taxation laws as they relate to both the domestic and international markets.
During your study, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in field trips and national and international study tours. You may also get to work on real-life cases while participating in the Curtin Tax Clinic.
The Taxation Law specialisation differs to the Taxation major in that it allows you to get a good working knowledge of taxation while majoring in a different area.
The knowledge you gain can boost your employability beyond the accounting discipline, as a background knowledge in taxation is desirable across many industries.

What you'll learn
- Please refer to Course Learning Outcomes
At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.
You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.
If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.
A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.
CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
Use the CRL search to find out how much CRL you qualify for, or contact us at:
