PhD Hooding

The PhD Hooding would be incorporated into the individual ceremony in which PhD graduates are being presented.

PhD graduates may wish to note the following:

  • You can remove your hood after taking your seat in the theatre.
  • Fold your hood and drape over your left arm when the marshals prompt you to line up at the side of the theatre
  • Pass the attendance card to the marshal when you are on stage.
  • Move to the Hooding Officer when your name is read out.
  • Pass the hood to the Hooding Officer who will then put the hood on you (your Supervisor will assist with the hooding if in attendance)
  • Move to the Presiding Officer to receive the folder
  • Exit the stage and move back to your seat
