Graduation gowns

You and your fellow graduands will all be required to wear graduation gowns to the ceremonies and we recommend that you order your gown at least three weeks before your ceremony.

Gowns should be ordered from Ede & Ravenscroft and, once ordered, will be available for collection from the ceremony venue.

There is no dress code for your guests, but as the ceremony is a formal occasion, we'd recommend all guests wear smart dress.

Gown hire costs

The cost of hiring your gown will depend on your level of award, the costs listed below are for guidance only and may vary.

  • Undergraduate - £45.00
  • Postgraduate - £51.00
  • Research - £65.00

You should be aware that if you fail to order your gown by the closing deadline you will need to arrange hire at the venue on the day of your ceremony.  This will cost significantly more and Ede and Ravenscroft cannot guarantee that they will have the correct size and gown for you.
