Gown Hire & Academic Dress

Higher Education graduands are required to wear a gown and hood, which you can order from our official suppliers Ede and Ravenscroft. It is your responsibility to arrange for the hire of your gown – these will be delivered to Queen's Hall for you to collect on the day of the ceremony.

The deadline for ordering is Friday 15th September.

Please take care when ordering your hood as there are different hoods for each qualification level. Take a look at our gown guide below, and if you need further help or advice, please ask a member of college staff.

Further Education graduands are not required to wear a gown but are expected to dress appropriately in academic dress.

We ask that graduands dress formally for the occasion. This could be national dress, dark suit, dark tie, dark skirt or dress, white shirt or blouse (no jeans).
