The robes are available on the ceremony day itself or from 8:30am the day before graduation. All robes and extras are to be returned by the Monday after graduation at latest. For General Admissions in June, collection is from 1pm the day before graduation (or day of graduation) and return is on the day of graduation after the ceremony (unless otherwise pre-arranged with our robe department).

Help & Questions

  • The on-line form will not accept bookings for ceremonies closer than five days. Please call us for late bookings so we can confirm availability.
  • Headwear: whilst headwear is not strictly required, some graduates choose to hire the mortarboard or Doctors Bonnet (PhD) for photographs after the ceremony.  If headwear is rented it must not be worn during the ceremony, unless otherwise directed by your Praelector.
  • Should you have any questions regarding our rental service or queries regarding the correct robes for your graduation, then e-mail us on and we’ll do our best to help, with no commitment to rent your robes from us.
  • After you book using our secure on-line booking form you will receive confirmation of booking with details of your hire.
  • Should your graduation be deferred we will honour your original booking at a later date with no additional charge, no refunds are given for robe hire cancellations made by the customer.

Fur Policy

Many of the hoods which we stock include a white fur trim, traditionally this fur has been the skins of rabbits. We at Ryder & Amies feel very strongly that the breeding of animals for their skins is not justified, particularly with the quality of artificial fur now available.  At Ryder & Amies we use only artificial fur.

Graduation Frames

Made in England these black and gold painted wooden frames are beautifully finished with a black mount, embossed with a gold flake College crest.  The frames measure 47cm x 36cm with the mount snuggly fitting the University Graduation Certificate.  If you order with your robe rental you will save the 10% online discount.  Frames can be collected with your rental or after graduation when you return your robes, whichever is more convenient to you.
