How to wear Academic Dress
Transcript of How to wear Academic Dress
You will need to put the robe on first-
Pull the robe as far forward as
possible to rest on the shoulders-
the back of the garment should be
resting close to the nape of your neck.
If your robe slips while waiting
for your award, lift the garment
carefully and pull it forward to return
it to position.
Step 2 - the Hood
Open the hood so it is
all black on the outside,
with the point of the hood
toward the floor.
Congratulations on Graduating from the Australian National University!
What do I need?
For the ceremony you will need:
a black robe
a hood/stole in the colour/style associated with your award
a trencher (mortarboard) (undergraduate and graduate students) or a bonnet (HDR students).
When you hire your robes, staff will identify the robes and colours suitable for the award you are receiving.
Step 1: The Robe
Put the hood
over your head so
that the 'V' shape is
across your chest
Turn the coloured silk
just at the sides of your neck,
so that a thin line of colour is visible,
and turn the hood out just a
little at the back to show the
coloured bands on the inside.
If the hood is slipping, pin
the garment in place against
Step 3 - Headdress
For undergraduate students,
the small point on
your trencher (mortarboard)
goes on your forehead.
Students that attend their Graduation Ceremony must wear full academic dress to the event.
Students may hire/purchase gowns
and regalia from Southam Studios
for the event.
A Graduation is a formal
event, so under your robes
you are encouraged to dress
in formal wear suitable for the occasion.
Assistance with robing will
be provided on the day.
If you want to prepare yourself,
however, this tutorial is a
of how to wear academic dress.
How to wear Academic Dress
The Colour of my Hood/Stole
At the ANU, the colour of your hood is associated with the colour of the ANU Academic College you are graduating from. If you are receiving multiple awards from different ANU Academic Colleges, a default option will be provided based on the ceremony you have been allocated [you will only wear one hood/stole].
Although you may see slits,
make sure you place your arms
through the entire length
of the sleeves.
Graduate and research students:
You will have a slit about half way along the sleeve, which the arm will need to be tucked through.
Depending upon the level of award you are receiving, you will be assigned a type of hood. For example:
Undergraduate and graduate
students wear their hood on stage. The hood will be in the style known as "Oxford Burgon cut", which is lined on the inside with silk fabric in the colour associated with their College.
HDR students will be hooded on stage as part of their ceremony. The hood will be in the style known as "Cambridge", which is fully lined with blue silk fabric.
*hood shown is the "Oxford Burgon" cut
Undergraduate and graduate students will wear a trencher (mortarboard) on stage.
The trencher will be solid black felt, with a flat square top and a black silk tassel, sitting on an oval cap that has a small point in the fore and a large point in the back.
Research students will wear a bonnet on stage.
The bonnet is fully lined black velvet with a blue cord and tassels. The tassels will sit on the right side of the face.
