The Faculty is recruited only by invitation from among scholars of repute. The appointments are usually on a yearly basis. The output of the scholars is closely watched for quality, shortfalls in quantity being excusable! The work of the School is assessed once in two years, or more frequently, by outside assessors who are reputed scholars or distinguished in some walks of life.

The scholars may be either resident in the premises, in the rooms provided, or they may be on a visiting basis. There is a category of Junior Fellows. Promising young scholars are selected for various specific projects.
