Academic dress (robe) is mandatory at all UCL Graduation Ceremonies for Students and Academic Staff who are part of the academic procession.
- Regulations and Awarding Bodies
The academic dress (robes) you wear depends on your qualification and the institution making the award. Although UCL received awarding powers in 2005 there are still some students who will receive a University of London award. You can check your awarding institution on your Portico.
Please see some of the regulation guides and notes below. We are currently updating both the Illustrated Guide to Academic Dress and the Regulations so please do not panic if there is information missing relating to your degree.
