Programme Overview

The University of Stellenbosch offers the degrees MAcc (Taxation) and MCom (Taxation) lecture options as two-year programmes. There is no difference between the content of these two degree programmes. The choice between these two degree programmes will depend on the qualifications obtained by the student prior to one of these programmes.

Students with a BAccHons degree, BAccLLB degree or the Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting will follow the MAcc, while students with both a BCom degree (with subjects in law) and an LLB degree will follow the MCom.
