Types of gowns for graduates and graduands

What type of gown do I wear?

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.

All graduands are required to wear a gown, a hood and a trencher cap (often referred to as a mortar board). Academic dress can be ordered through the UWA On-line Academic Dress Ordering Service supplied by GFP. Academic dress prices vary according to the award that is being conferred.

To make sure you've got it right on the day (and get the best photos), visit the GFP’s dress me station outside the Undercroft facing Great Court North before your ceremony. There will also be someone to adjust your regalia right before you go on stage, so there’s nothing to worry about.
