Note:  Do not rely on this information. It is very old.


Fellows of Colleges generally form the governing body, and are paid out of the college revenues. Since 1880 there have been two great classes at Oxford and Cambridge - Prize Fellows, elected usually after examination, and Official Fellows. The latter are required to reside in the college or university, and take part in tutorial or other work. Celibacy is now seldom enforced. Usually the appointment is for a term of years.
