The University of Exeter is a public research university, offering research and study in the sciences, social sciences, business, humanities and arts.
The University originally went out to tender in 2018 for the provision of ceremonial gown services for its 23 graduation events annually. This included the provision for students to book attendance at one of the many events, hire or purchase gowns and book attendance for family members. The University also required the ability for academic staff and VIP personnel to be able to book attendance and their relevant attire for the occasion.
The chosen organisation was also required to provide all gowns, as well as a gown collection, robing and return service on the day. Graduation Attire responded to the tender, providing a proposal that was ultimately awarded, being the most economically advantageous offer above all others received.
