Formal wear for graduation ceremonies

Graduands

Degree Congregations are formal occasions and all graduands are expected to dress for such an occasion. Alternatives to this may be worn for cultural and religious reasons, however casual wear is not deemed appropriate.

Please bear in mind that you will be climbing and descending a number of platform steps, so please wear sensible footwear.  You may wish to wear a blouse or shirt with buttons down the front to help attach your academic hood, or a brooch if not.
