If you choose to graduate in person, you must wear the correct academic regalia. You are responsible for obtaining your own academic regalia and you should organise your regalia early to ensure availability.
On graduation day, graduands wear the hood and gown appropriate to their degree. The graduation ceremony is a formal celebration of your achievement and graduands are encouraged to dress appropriately.
In addition to the correct academic regalia, some graduands choose to wear clothing or garments of honour from their tradition such as a sari, korowai or ta'ovala over their gown. The hood must be worn over the top of these garments.
Academic regalia is hired through the Canterbury branch of the Federation of Graduate Women.

Information about regalia for the December 2013 ceremonies will be available from 1 August.
