Academic Dress

Arrangements have been made with Ede and Ravenscroft for the hire of gowns and hats these are included in your graduation fee. We recommend that students wear a light colour blouse/shirt and black trousers/skirt and guests dress "smart/casual".

When registering to attend your graduation you will be asked to provide your height and head size. This will ensure you have the correct sized gown on the day.

Please see below for head size guide:


54cm – 56.8cm


55.9cm – 56.8cm


57.8cm – 58.7cm

Extra Large

59.7cm – 60.0cm

Ede and Ravenscroft are the official suppliers of the gowns for the award ceremonies we hold in Liverpool and so the gowns and hoods will be like those used in Liverpool.

We do NOT recommend any other supplier

If you would like to hire the gowns for any extra days please speak to Ede and Ravenscroft on the day of the ceremony who will ask you to complete a form and pay a rental fee. Ede and Ravenscroft charge a rental fee of RM80.00 with a refundable deposit of RM200.00. Total RM280.00 and you can hire it for upto 10 days.
