Hire your gown and hood
Make sure you hire your gown and hood in advance of your ceremony - the deadline for our supplier, Ede & Ravenscroft, is Monday 19 November!
It is compulsory for graduands and diplomates to wear the University academic dress for the ceremony. To hire or purchase your graduation outfit, please visit Ede and Ravenscroft online.
Make sure you book early – Ede and Ravenscroft cannot always guarantee an order if you leave your booking later than 21 days before your ceremony.
Be sure to hire the correct gown according to your qualification, see our guide to the different Graduation gowns for details.
The dress code for Graduation is formal, and we expect all students to dress in this style for the occasion. This may be an appropriate opportunity to wear your national dress.
Before you start your booking, please make sure you know your head circumference in centimetres (follow the diagram below) plus your chest and height measurements.
