Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Mary Dineen from Irish Tax Institute to give some advice for people considering this job:
|An essential prerequisite to a career in tax is obtaining the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification. Due to the varied and hands on nature of the work in Taxand Ireland’s office, I have found working in tax very beneficial when preparing for the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) exams and conversely, I have found the knowledge I have acquired as part of the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) course has assisted me massively in my day to day work with Taxand Ireland (William Fry).|

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the QQI, HEA or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
The BA Joint Honours in Law gives students the opportunity to combine teh study of law with the study of other Arts subjects.
The first year Legal Studies course is made up of three modules: Irish Legal System, which covers the history and structure of the Irish legal system; Key Issues in Irish Law, which introduces students to aspects of core subjects such as constitutional law, criminal law and human rights; and Legal Skills, which introduces students to the skills required for legal research, writing and presentation.
As part of an Arts degree, this subject is one of three subjects you choose in first year. In second and third year you continue with two of the subjects taken in First Arts. It may be possible to take an extra year studying abroad.
Restricted Entry Subjects: students should note that they may choose only ONE from the following traditional Arts subjects: Beginners' German, Léann an Aistriúcháin, Legal Studies, Information Technology, Mathematics and Psychology.
Each of the above subjects has restrictions on entry to Second Arts based upon performance in First Arts. Therefore, successful completion of the subject in First Arts may not guarantee progression to Second Arts in that subject. For this reason, the College does not permit any student to register for more than ONE restricted entry subject.
Limited numbers of students are admitted to Second Arts in Legal Studies (100) and Psychological Studies (100). Places will be decided on merit, based on the results of the First Sitting (Semester 1 and Semester 2) of the First Arts examination in the student's first year of attendance (2013–2014), where the student must have passed all four subjects outright (40% or higher).
Students who avail of exemptions on the basis of appropriate prior learning are not entitled to compete for a place.
