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.

“We give lovely parties that last through the night,
I dress as a woman and scream with delight,
We wake up at lunch time and find were still tight.
What could be duller than that?”
—Noël Coward (18991973)
“If twins are believed to be less intelligent as a class than single-born children, it is not surprising that many times they are also seen as ripe for social and academic problems in school. No one knows the extent to which these kind of attitudes affect the behavior of multiples in school, and virtually nothing is known from a research point of view about social behavior of twins over the age of six or seven, because this hasnt been studied either.”
—Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)
