 Academic dress - The university tradition - University of Kent
Although academic dress is as ancient as the earliest universities, it would be wrong to think that either modern academic robes owe a great deal in detail to those of their medieval predecessors or that masters and students of medieval universities wore a rigidly defined uniform as in a modern public school.
Even hoods were not confined either to churchmen or to university members in the Middle Ages, and in that sense the modern tendency away from formal academic dress in the everyday life of a university is not so much a break with ancient tradition as a return to the original state of things.
Academic dress for senior members of medieval universities was more rigorously prescribed and masters and doctors were expected to wear proper attire on formal occasions.
