Attire / Robe / Gown

The academic gown and hood worn at graduation ceremonies can be traced back to the 12th century when the first universities were founded in Europe. Scholars in those days, whether they were students or monks, wore long gowns to protect themselves from the cold. The hoods which were attached to the gown could be pulled up over the head depending on the weather.

By the 16th century, the gown and hood were worn only by the religious, legal, and academic professions. The gown remained relatively the same but the hood had developed into a shoulder-like cape which was detached from the gown. It was the universities of Oxford and Cambridge that first began imposing a prescribed style, colour, cut, and material to their academic regalia.

The traditional mortar-board evolved from the ‘pileus’ or hat worn at the Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Today, the wearing of the gown, hood, and mortar-board symbolises an honourable and everlasting link between present scholars and their medieval counterparts.

The design of the academic dress, hood, and mortar-board worn by SMM Education Group graduates is unique to the academic centre.
