What to Wear
Please note that if you have a Bachelor or Masters Degree you will be required to hire a gown, trencher, a degree hood to represent your previous study and an MIT diploma stole which costs $101.00 to hire.
We will need some details about your previous degree. Click on the "Add Hood" box to type in details about your previous degree, e.g. Bachelor of Arts from University of Auckland (or overseas, please specify)
If you earned your previous degree overseas or outside of the Auckland area, we will do our best to supply a hood to wear which represents your previous degree. We can supply:
1. A colour match, a hood of a similar colour to the degree colour you wore to represent your previous degree.
2. A hood that is the equivalent of your overseas degree e.g. you have received a Bachelor of Business/Commerce overseas. We will give you a Bachelor of Commerce hood from a New Zealand University to represent your overseas degree. Please feel free to call us if you need help with this on 09 3581044.
Degree hoods have a satin lining which may cause the hood to slide down the back. You can keep your hood in place with Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust hood pins which come in a variety of colours and styles. You can add hood pins to your order in the shopping cart or purchase them in store when collecting and fitting. Hood pins cost $5.50 each.
Bachelor gowns are worn according to height and come in 8 different lengths. Trenchers come in 15 different sizes. Your gown and trencher sizing will be carried out by our trained staff on the day you come to collect your regalia. Your degree hood and diploma stole are one size fits all.
