About this deal

About Graduation Caps, Academic Mortarboards, Doctoral Tams & Beefeaters offered by Graduation Gowns UK This tale is relayed at Durham University, University of Cambridge, University of Bristol, Trinity College of Dublin, and the University of St Andrews among many others. Newcastle University has a similar tale, in which graduates from Durham University threw away their hats to the River Tyne as an act of independence. NB: If you are not sure what size you need (e.g. you land on the boundary), we would recommend going for the larger size, allowing a more comfortable fit. Worn by those taking postgraduate taught, or postgraduate research degrees (e.g. MSc, MPhil, DPhil etc.)

Indeed, some universities such as Open University have a policy that states that academic headgear is not to be worn at graduation ceremonies at all, and some other universities have abandoned head wear for political reasons, or because the designer of the graduation robes intended them to be worn without hats.This has often been misinterpreted – urban legends at many universities like Trinity College, University of Bristol, and University of Cambridge state that men stopped wearing the cap to protest the admission of women into the university. This is not true – it was simply a matter of changing times and traditions that caused many men to stop wearing their hats. a b Robinson, N F (1905). "The Pileus Quadratus: An enquiry into the relation of the priest's square cap to the common academical catercap and to the judicial corner-cap". Transactions of the St Paul's Ecclesiological Society. 5: 1–16 . Retrieved 14 May 2015. The initial design for mortarboards came from Italian-style birettas, hats worn by Roman Catholic clergymen. The biretta was tall and round and was slowly adapted by students into a design that was more comfortable and easier to wear. In the UK, the tassel is shorter and is gathered at the button at the centre of the board. The U.S. style is slightly longer, gathered at a cord attached to the button.

A three-colour graduation tassel in burgundy, gold and white. The charm reveals it is from a 1987 ceremony. This particular tassel came from Piner High School in Santa Rosa, California. United Kingdom [ edit ] Made of a lightweight, impact and UV resistant polymer that won’t conduct heat like steel pans and is nearly indestructible The Society admitted men in 1975 as a ramification of Title IX, at which point a clause was added in the Purpose to include "to promote and advance the status of women." This was further revised the following year to read, "...to emphasize the advancement of the status of women" as well as "to promote equal opportunities among all people." [2] [3]Until the second half of the twentieth century, mortarboards were often worn by schoolteachers, and the hat remains an icon of the teaching profession. This article is about the garment.
