When Academic Dress is Worn

Components of University of Exeter academic dress

Gowns are of the Cambridge pattern, except the foundation degree which is of the CNAA/Aberdeen Shape. Historically the University used different shades of blue for different faculties, however in 1986 this was changed to a common shade of blue for all.[2]

Undergraduates

Historically the undergraduate gown style was based on the Cambridge basic pattern, with those in receipt of scholarship having gowns with dark green facings and yoke. It is not current practice at the University of Exeter for undergraduate gowns to be worn.

Graduands traditionally wore the dress of the degree they were about to receive.

Foundation Degrees

The black undress gowns of PhD, EdD and DClinPsych are of the Masters’ pattern with Doctors’ lace around the sleeve openings only.

Hoods and Headgear

Hoods are of the Cambridge “full” shape and the University's hood colour is dove grey.

All Bachelors and Masters wear the black academic square mortarboard with black tassel. Doctors in full dress wear the velvet bonnet with Spectrum blue chord. Women graduates and women members of the academic staff wear the appropriate headgear whenever the hood is worn. Men also wear the appropriate headgear except when being presented for a degree.

Accompanying Dress

On occasions when the wearing of academic dress is prescribed, University Regulations stipulate that accompanying address should be a dark suit - it is not specified whether this is different according to the gender of the graduand.[3]
