Oxford dress laws to suit transgender students

Oxford University has revised its strict academic dress code to cater for transgender students.

The university said it had rewritten laws governing academic dress following concerns that they “did not serve the interests” of transgender students. New laws are due to come into force this week.

Under the new regulations students taking exams or attending formal occasions will no longer have to wear ceremonial clothing that is specific to their gender.
