Academic Dress

You must be properly attired as befits the occasion as academic tradition is observed and the ceremonial proceedings at the Convocation are kept formal and dignified. Academic dress is mandatory for all graduates attending the ceremony.

The full academic dress consists of a gown, a hood and a mortarboard (bonnet for PhD graduates). The colour of the hood indicates the discipline of the degree. You may check the colour of the hood for your degree.

Please watch this video on how to wear the academic dress.

Do note that any graduate found inappropriately dressed will not be permitted to attend the ceremony. Please also refer to the dress code  for the Convocation.
