Bachelors Graduation Gowns - University Gowns by Graduation Gowns UKAbout Bachelors Graduation Gowns for University offered by Graduation Gowns UK
Today’s most commonly-worn gowns by the Bachelor of Arts (BA) are of a clerical type, and are mostly the same throughout the entire English-speaking world, due to the influence of the UK’s higher education system.
Bachelors gowns are usually made of black cloth, though some universities purchase the gowns in their own school colors. They have material gathered in the back of the gown into a “yoke.” The “curved” yoke is more traditional, but the “square” or “straight” yoke is more common in modern times.
The BA gown has bell-shaped sleeves and typically the gowns are worn open in the UK and commonwealth countries. In contrast, in the U.S., most gowns close at the front, similar to the original robe garment.
