During the early years of establishment, many of the Vice Chancellors of the University of Malaya were seconded from the University of Oxford. Hence, it is understandable that the gown worn by university of Malaya graduands on the day of convocation are very similar to the gown worn by Oxford graduands.
The gown worn by a Bachelor Degree holder is modeled on the Bachelor of Arts (BA) gown of the University of Oxford. It is a dark blue in colour with a button and a braided cord and clasp, with bell-shaped sleeves.

Bachelor degree holders wear hoods of dark bluecolour lined with silk. The hoods of Master’s degree and Doctoral degree recipeinents have a wider silk lining and are circular in shape. The colour of the silk lining indicates the recipients respective academy/faculty/intitute/centre. The colour of the silk lining for the Faculty of Dentistry is scarlet.
