    Academic robes

    All graduates are required to wear academic robes during the ceremony. It is important to place your order by the deadline of 5th December. Staff will be on duty to assist graduates with robeing. Although it is a matter of personal choice what you wear to the ceremony it is a formal occasion and we recommend that graduates dress smartly or in national or military dress. You may find it useful to know that the sleeves of the gown end at the elbow. Male graduates are advised to wear a shirt as there is a loop on the hood which can be affixed over a button. Women graduates are advised to have a brooch or pin to help fix the hood if they are not wearing a blouse. The hood should lay at the edge of your shoulder and not be wrapped around your arms like a shawl.

    Gowns are ordered through www.gownhire.co.uk
