Advice for doctoral candidates on the public defence of their doctoral dissertations

Gowns that can be used at the public defence of a doctoral dissertation

Gowns

The University of Tampere has had gowns made for use at the public defence of a doctoral dissertation. They were designed by textile artist Päikki Priha. They comprise the same basic model for all, a simple garment in black wool muslin. There are detachable collars in woven linen. These are available in three colours: yellow for the author of the dissertation, blue for the opponent and grey for the custos. There is a gilded University badge on the right front corner of the collar.

Those using these gowns should be aware that both the shoes and the collar of their own shirt or blouse will be visible, thus the shirt or blouse should be white or black and the shoes black.

The same garments are used at all the Faculties.

There are separate sizes for men (medium, large, extra large and extra-extra large), and for women (small, medium and large). Collars are available in all colours, small, medium and large.

Reservations for the gowns should be made through Ms Marjo Silvala, Tel. 050 327 5931, e-mail: firstname.lastname@uta.fi. They may be viewed and tried on in advance in the Main building, B-wing. Please make an appointment beforehand with Ms Silvala.
