UTS home UTS: Graduations


For all awards academic dress is comprised of a black gown, hood in the colour of the faculty, at the level of the award, and a trencher (cap).

When wearing academic dress, the hood (colours) should hang evenly from the shoulders. The trencher is worn straight on the head with the tassel hanging over the right side as seen in this picture. The trencher is worn throughout the ceremony except during the National Anthem.

Graduation ceremonies are formal occasions so please wear appropriate clothing. When choosing what to wear it may be helpful to consider that academic gowns are quite heavy and can be very warm.
