You will receive more detailed information about how to order your gown in August. Please note that the deadline to order your gown is Monday 28th October 2024. 

When filling in your information on the Ede & Ravenscroft website, please select Middlesbrough College as your institution. Your ID is your student number; this can be found on your student card and begins with ‘M’.  

It is important to note that only gowns supplied by Ede & Ravenscroft are allowed at the ceremony. You may not be able to graduate if you wear an incorrect gown. We appreciate your cooperation as we celebrate such a significant milestone in your academic journey!

Please be aware that the College’s photographer and videographer will be taking photographs of the ceremony which will be used for promotional advertising purposes.
