Gowns and Hoods

The School offers a comprehensive range of academic hoods, which reflect the level of academic attainment, either by assessment or examination.

In the case of honorary Fellowships, the standard Fellowship hood is used.

Two hoods are non-award-bearing.

  • The Millenium hood - noting membership of the School during that period.
  • The Membership hood, which simply shows an affiliation with the School.

Details of all of our hoods are listed below. The School also has its own academic gown.
