The academic dress of University of Melbourne describes the formal attire of robes, gowns and hoods prescribed by the Statutes and Regulations for undergraduates, graduates, officers and honorands of the university. This follows the Oxford style for the gowns and hoods for the Bachelors and Masters degrees. For its doctorates, Melbourne follows the style of Cambridge.
The hoods are all black (of size and shape those of the Oxford MA; i.e. Burgon simple-shape) lined with the colour specified for the relevant faculty or degree, and bound with white (on the lower edge) for bachelors, and no binding for masters. The faculty or degree colours are specified in the University Regulations. Formerly, Pass degrees were bound in fur and Honours in silk — however the distinction no longer exists. Bachelors wear an Oxford Bachelors gown, and Masters an Oxford Masters gown. The undergraduate gown is the same as the bachelors, but the sleeves must not be split. Masters may wear the mortar board, however undergraduate students and Bachelors are not permitted to wear the mortar board. This rule is strictly applied and extends to graduation photography as well as the ceremony itself .
The academic dress for a PhD consists of an Oxford masters gown, faced in scarlet, with a black hood lined in scarlet, and a bonnet with a scarlet cord. Higher doctorates are scarlet, lined and faced in the colour of the faculty/degree, with a larger scarlet hood lined in the colour of the faculty/degree, and a bonnet with a gold cord.

Famous quotes containing the words university, dress and/or academic:
“Television ... helps blur the distinction between framed and unframed reality. Whereas going to the movies necessarily entails leaving ones ordinary surroundings, soap operas are in fact spatially inseparable from the rest of ones life. In homes where television is on most of the time, they are also temporally integrated into ones real life and, unlike the experience of going out in the evening to see a show, may not even interrupt its regular flow.”
—Eviatar Zerubavel, U.S. sociologist, educator. The Fine Line: Making Distinctions in Everyday Life, ch. 5, University of Chicago Press (1991)
“Immorality, perversion, infidelity, cannibalism, etc., are unassailable by church and civic league if you dress them up in the togas and talliths of the Good Book.”
—Ben Hecht (18931964)
“You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown. I wouldnt kid Our Lord if he was on the cross. But I would attempt a joke with him if I ran into him chasing the money changers out of the temple.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
