HI Tax_Lawyer,

I studied previously at Queen Mary, and am presently at the University of Leiden in the tax program, and so have a bit of an understanding of the British and Dutch systems now.

What is your background, and what are you hoping to get out of the program you attend?

Cheers,
Luke

Hello everybody, I am a 29 y.o. Italian chartered accountant and I would attend a full-time 1 year course in international taxation in Europe (as soon as possible).
I would do this with the intent to extend my knowledge to international taxation and to find a job outside Italy. I have already sent my application to Queen Mary University in London and I'm taking into consideration other 2 universities: Leiden and Neuchatel. It seems to me that:
- Queen Mary could be the best choice if a a student has the precise idea to find a job in UK once finished, but it is not so clear the schedule of the course and what will be the program during the entire academic year; furthermore it seems to me that the course is not so intense in terms of hours of lesson as the other courses (and this could be the reason why the tuition fee is lower);
- Leiden and Neuchatel seem to be more organized, with more lessons;
- Leiden is the most famous (is it a positive thing, so could I have more employment opportunities once finished? or a negative thing, so it is to inflated and will be hard to find a good position once finished?);
- Neuchatel offers an international or a swiss curriculum and the it is possible to choose between corporate or individual program; this university seems to be more based on pratical cases than Leiden. The LLM course of this university is younger than the same of Leiden and the fact that it is in Switzerland could be an advantage to find a job there once finished even for students coming from abroad ?!;
- Neuchatel does not offer exemptions for the ADIT or ACCA qualification;
- Leiden requires more documentation in the application than Neuchatel, in particular Neuchatel does not requires the recommendation letters (and for me it is a good thing, because I don't want to go to my boss and say: hey, I'm leaving, sign my a paper in which you write that I'm perfect and that you recommend me to the university!);
- Leiden starts in September 2012, Neuchatel in January 2013.
I think that Neuchatel could be the best choice at the moment and the idea to find a job in Switzerland sounds good. What's your opinion?
