There are no graduation fees at the University of Edinburgh.
There is, however, a charge for the hiring of your hood and gown from Ede & Ravenscroft.
The cost of hire is dependant upon when you order: see Ede and Ravenscroft website for details. All students who are eligible to receive a degree, diploma or certificate can attend the relevant ceremony.
