At present the Faculty includes approximately 32 Teaching Officers (Professors, Readers, University Lecturers, and Language Teaching Officers) whose primary teaching responsibilities are university lectures and classes and graduate supervision. Most hold College Fellowships.

In addition, there are College Fellows in Classics. Their primary teaching responsibility is undergraduate college teaching although many also give university lectures and supervise graduate students.

There are also more than 20 people employed as Research Fellows, Directors of Research and post-doctoral researchers on projects associated with the Faculty.

There are approximately 80 graduate students and 230 undergraduate students in the Faculty.
