As your graduation ceremony is a very special occasion, marking your academic achievement, it is mandatory that all graduands wear full academic dress (gown, hood and mortarboard) and, therefore, it is not possible to participate in the ceremony without it.
Ede & Ravenscroft are the official suppliers of University of Cumbria academic dress.
University of Cumbria style and colours
The colours and style of the gowns and hoods indicate both the award (eg diploma, foundation, bachelor, postgraduate or master) and the awarding university.
It's very important that you order the correct academic dress for your qualification as the style is different for each level of award - if in doubt, contact us and check!
