The convocation ceremony which is convened every year in UUM is the 21st century version of a long tradition which has its roots in the Middle Ages. Today’s convocation is a continuation of this tradition and this is reflected in the use of Latin words such as in absentia for those who are absent and honoris causa for the award of an honorary degree.

Similarly, degrees are still conferred by the Chancellor or Pro-Chancellor (these titles were used before the 16th Century), and if they are unable to attend, the Vice-Chancellor will be given the authority to confer the degrees. The Chancellor, the Pro-Chancellor, or the Vice-Chancellor acts as the chairperson of the convocation.

Another tradition from the Middle Ages which has remained till this day is the academic attire worn during the ceremony. This includes the robe, cap and hood worn by the graduands, university officers and members of the academic procession. The academic robe and hood come in an array of colours and designs to indicate the type of degrees conferred (Doctorate, Master’s or Bachelor’s), the conferring University and the degree programme. The academic attire of the Chancellor, Pro- Chancellor, and Vice-Chancellor is embroidered with gold or silver edgings.

The convocation commences with the academic procession making its way into the convocation hall. The procession proceeds in the following order: Academic staff, Deans, Professors, Honorary Graduates, Public Orator, Senior University Officers, and the Mace bearer (Esquire Bedell) who leads the Chairperson of the ceremony, who is either the Chancellor, Pro-Chancellor, or Vice-Chancellor. In Malaysia, the ceremony begins with the recital of the doa (prayer), and a welcoming address by the Vice- Chancellor. This is followed by the conferment of degrees. The conferment will usually begin with the awarding of honorary degrees. The honorand will be given an introduction by the Public Orator before the Chairperson confers the degree. The recipient is then usually given the honour of delivering a speech.

Next is the conferment of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. This is followed by the conferment of Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees. Each of the graduands will be called upon by name to receive their degrees from the Chancellor or Pro-Chancellor. A graduand is called a graduate only upon receiving a degree, which confers on the graduate all the rights and privileges of using the title such as BBA, MSc or PhD after his/her name. For those who are absent, their degrees will be awarded in absentia.

The convocation adjourns with a closing speech by the Chairperson. The academic procession leaving the hall will be in reverse order to that during the entry; with the Mace bearer leading and escorting the Chairperson and the rest of the members of the academic procession out of the hall.
