The wearing of an academic gown is mandatory for all graduands. Academic gowns must be hired from Ede and Ravenscroft (link below) in advance of the ceremony. A small number of academic gowns may be available on the day (in case of emergency) however you are advised to book your academic gown well in advance. All academic gowns must be returned to the academic gowning marquee by 5.00 pm.
Graduation is a formal event and graduands are asked to dress smartly. You may find it helpful to wear something with a button on the front to help prevent your academic gown slipping off your shoulders. Jeans, T-shirts and other casual items are not considered appropriate for Graduation ceremonies. Bear in mind that the floor in Norwich Cathedral is stone and you will need to walk a relative distance to collect your award, so appropriate footwear should be worn.
