Academic Prizes

Various merit-based academic prizes are offered within the Faculties of Commerce and Law and by other organisations to students who excel in their studies and research.

Students enrolled in the various tax programmes offered by UCT have been the recipients of the IBFD-UCT award and the Norton Rose Fullbright National Tax Thesis Competition.

International Fiscal Association Poster Programme

The International Fiscal Association (IFA) poster programme aims to promote students to study and discuss international taxation. The annual programme is open to a maximum of ten students graduating in international taxation who are writing a thesis on a theoretical or practical subject.

Participation in the IFA poster programme allows students the possibility to:
•    attend the Annual IFA Congress free of registration fee;
•    exhibit a Poster, indicating the main issues and parts of their thesis, in the Congress premises;
•    to discuss with interested Congress participants the issues of their thesis.

On the occasion of the IFA Annual Congress 2015 in Basel, Switzerland, Louise Moller, a UCT International Tax Masters student will present a poster dealing with international tax transparency and taxpayers’ rights. The poster and accompanying brochure may be access here.
