The Open University - Hire

Please note that mortarboards are not an official part of the academic dress for the Open University, however many people like to purchase or hire a mortarboard for photographs.

The Open University was established in 1969 as the UK's first 'open learning' university, whose courses could be taken anywhere in the world. Over 3 million students have taken open university courses since it was established. It is the largest academic institution in the UK by student numbers.

Every year The Open University hosts a number of degree ceremonies in locations around the UK and Western Europe. They are not officially graduation ceremonies as the students presented have already received their degrees, however the ceremonies are a formal presentation of graduates to the University Chancellor and a fitting celebration for the work of its students. In the year 2000 The Open University even became the first university to host an online graduation for international students!

Students of The Open University wear academic dress at the degree ceremonies. All academic dress reflects the University colours of gold and blue whilst the level of qualification is denoted by the shade and pattern of the colours. Whilst mortarboards are not worn for the ceremony, they may be worn by graduates on other occasions.
