The majority of college Fellows are holders of university posts, taking on additional college responsibilities for which they usually receive extra remuneration. However, Cambridge colleges also appoint College Teaching Officers, who not only provide core undergraduate teaching for the college (or sometimes for other colleges under reciprocal arrangements) but also act as Directors of Studies and assume other college offices and duties as appropriate. If the opportunity arises, College Teaching Officers may also lecture and teach for the University, which is separately remunerated.
