Ceremonial academic dress

Ceremonial academic dress consists of a robe, a headwear, a tassel and a sash. Academic dress is a historically traditional dress, which is worn in the academic community. Although nowadays we can see it only during formal ceremonies, it was used as everyday dress in the old days (now it is worn in some old universities). The history of academic regalia started in the Middle Ages. Universities of that time derived from church schools. The dress of professors and students was strictly prescribed and copied the clerk’s dress, in other words, еру dress worn by monks. Moreover, this was everyday clothes. Well after, this dress was converted into a robe, which they began to put on only for formal events. Later European universities invented more fashionable tunics with open stand and wide shortened sleeves. This variant is a prototype of modern robes.

Nowadays the main parts of an academic dress are a robe and a mortarboard (bonnet). A modern robe has almost the same features as those of its predecessor. An academic degree could be identified by the complexity of the fit and fabrication. These traditions still exist. A square academic cap with a tassel, a mortarboard, meant the unity of all the sides of life and the perseverance of those who acquired the knowledge. The mortarboard turned into a symbol of academic achievements. A tassel is a vital element of academic dress. Undergraduates wear it on the right side of the mortarboard, while graduates and academicians have earned the right to wear it on the left side. The rearrangement of the tassel is a significant moment of the ceremony of graduation.
