There are four types of academic gowns, three of which represent a Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree and Doctorate degree. The fourth is the Royal Gown, which is reserved only for the King. The basic material of the gown is an attractive white gauze-like cloth. Along the edges are bands of colour (gold, black, etc.) of various widths. The different colours and number of bands denote the level of higher education and faculty of the graduates.
