Academic Dress

The Yale-NUS College academic dress comprises a base gown, hood, sash and mortarboard.

The black base gown is accompanied by a hood with blue and white trim. In addition, the Yale-NUS academic dress will include an orange sash with a batik-inspired print of the College’s Kingfisher mascot, Halcyon. The sash will have blue trim on both ends of the sash and white trim along the edges. This will be worn hanging over the front of the academic dress.

The elements and colours of the Yale-NUS academic dress incorporate elements from the National University of Singapore and Yale University in their hood and sash colours respectively. In addition, the use of the hood and sash correspondingly reflects the practices at NUS and Yale.

*The sash is a batik-inspired print designed by Yale-NUS student Natalie Tan from the Class of 2017.
