Dress code

Formal dress is customary.

Your graduation is a ceremonial event and formal dress is customary. All students must wear a gown, hood and hat with smart clothing underneath. We recommend that you bring hairgrips to secure your hat.

Jeans, t-shirts, trainers and other casual attire are not considered appropriate for attendance at the ceremony and are not allowed.

Gowns may be available on the day of your ceremony if you have not already pre-ordered, but you will be charged a premium rate.

Students are advised not to bring bags and to keep personal belongings to a minimum. Any belongings should be left with guests where possible.
