What is academic dress?
Full and appropriate academic dress comprising gown, hood and hat (normally a mortar board) must be worn by graduands. Graduands cannot be presented at the ceremony unless appropriately gowned.
The ceremonies are formal occasions and we recommend that candidates should dress smartly. We welcome national dress for international students and military uniforms are also acceptable. Jeans, T-shirts and other casual attire are not considered appropriate for graduation ceremonies.
Please ensure that you book academic dress in advance of your graduation. You are strongly advised to order your academic dress as soon as possible and at least 21 days prior to your ceremony.
Buttons, pins and hats
In order speed up the collection of your gown, print out your order confirmation and take it with you when you collect your robes on the day of your ceremony.
