The event happens every year on Trinity Monday, which marks the start of Trinity Week.

Scholars are students who have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and understanding of their subjects and are elected annually as the result of an examination.

Fellows are elected on the basis of research achievement or scholarship of a high order, along with evidence of their contribution to the academic life of the university, and effective record of teaching.
