Programmes & Courses


Qualifying Examination Programme (QEP)

The Institute has cooperated with other local education institutions in providing various postgraduate programmes, preparing students for taking the Certified Tax Adviser (CTA) Qualifying Examination and enriching their tax knowledge.


  • Professional Diploma in Tax Advisory
The Programme was first revamped in 2012 to become the Continuing Education Diploma in Tax Advisory. After several years of success, the Programme was further restructured and renamed as “Professional Diploma in Tax Advisory” to enrich students’ knowledge in taxation and to develop their career in the field of professional tax advisory. Successful completion of this 10-month program will entitle the students, who have the qualifying tax experience, to become members of the Institute. They will also get exemptions from the Hong Kong Tax Paper and International Tax Paper of the Institute’s CTA Examination.

The new intakes of the Programme will commence in January 2021, and the enrollment deadline is extended to 21 Dec 2020 (Monday). Please visit for more details, or refer to the flyer of the Programme:
