Gowns of all doctoral programmes (full dress) of the University are not black.

Please refer to the information provided on the following website regarding colour of gowns for all doctoral programmes (full dress): htttp://www4.hku.hk/congreg/academic-dress/academic-dresses

The videos and the information provided on the "Suggested Attire" page of the Congregation website (http://www4.hku.hk/congreg/academic-dress/suggested-attire) are merely for providing suggestions. There is no rule or regulation on what Graduands should wear and what colour of their outfits should be in order to put on the relevant academic dresses.

The black suit and white shirt are by no means for matching the colour of the gowns but just to demonstrate choices of decent attire.Graduands should use the best of their judgment for what to wear so as to look their best and smartest for attending the Congregation.

If anyone still has doubt, he or she can follow the suggestions given.

But our PhD gown is not black, so what are the acceptable colours for our dress code?

They may not get their previous degrees in HKU or Hong Kong. Who can be sure that all the academic dresses for PhDs, Masters and Bachelors are the same all over the world?

A PhD candidate still needs a video to show how to wear the academic dress? He or she should go back to school to study for a first degree.

Those who would be graduating from a PhD or other doctoral degrees, theoretically speaking, would have obtained a first degree and a master's degree and therefore should have known how to wear a doctoral degree academic dress.
