Your Academic Gown

Your graduation day will be a wonderful celebration of the end of your studies in Trinity.

Each degree type has a different academic gown which you will need to hire for the day of your Degree Ceremony- details about hiring gowns will be sent a couple of months before your ceremony.

Please see the variety of different gowns in the gallery below so you can ensure you hire the correct gown for your Degree Ceremony.

If you are taking your first degree from Oxford then you need to go into the ceremony wearing the gown for your current Oxford status e.g. commoners gown, exhibitioners gown, graduate commoners gown.

If you are taking any higher degree and have already taken a degree from Oxford then you need to go into the ceremony wearing the gown (and hood) for your current Oxford status e.g. if you are taking an MA you will need to wear the BA gown and hood into the ceremony; or if you took a graduate degree at Oxford and are now taking a DPhil, then you would need to wear the gown and hood for your first degree into the ceremony.
