Do I need to measure my head circumference for graduation?

Tudor bonnet: PhD graduates will need to measure their head circumference to obtain the correct sizing of the regulation tudor bonnet. As a guide, your head circumference should be measured from 4-5cm above the eyebrow, 2-3 cm above the top of your ears and around the back of your head. If you do not have a tape measure, simply use a piece of string and measure it against a ruler.

Mortarboard: For the purchase of a mortarboard you do not need to measure your head circumference as the mortarboard is a one-size-fits all.
