What to wear to your graduation ceremony

What should I wear to my graduation ceremony?

Graduands attending their UWA Graduation Ceremony must wear the correct academic dress and, in keeping with a formal occasion, are asked to wear neat business attire under their academic dress. Remember that you will be going up and down stairs and crossing the dais so sensible footwear is also recommended.

All graduands are required to wear a gown, a hood and a trencher cap (often referred to as a mortar board).

The University has appointed a preferred provider of academic dress Phillips & Father; however, graduands may obtain academic dress from any supplier provided the academic dress complies with the University's Statute 11.

For those graduands who choose to order their regalia through Phillips & Father, you can place your order via the UWA On-line Academic Dress Ordering Service supplied by Phillips & Father. Academic dress prices vary according to the award that is being conferred.
