The Master is initiated into the Academy

According to the Tenth Doctor, children "were taken from their families at the age of eight" to begin their instruction. Part of the initiation into the academy involved looking into the Untempered Schism. (TV: The Sound of Drums) A selection of the applicants was provided. (TV: Listen)

At the induction ceremony for the Academy all Time Lords said:

"I swear to protect the ancient Law of Gallifrey with all my might and brain. I will to the end of my days, with justice and with honour temper my actions and my thoughts." (HOMEVID: Shada)

Graduation Edit

When a Gallifreyan had been granted the rank of Junior Time Lord in the Time Lord Academy, they received their symbiotic nuclei. (PROSE: Interference - Book One) To graduate they were tested, with a pass rate of 51% (such as that achieved by the Doctor), up to a "Triple First" grade (like Romana I), and could take the test more than once if necessary, with the result being confidential. (TV: The Ribos Operation)

There was a TARDIS cradle in the Time Lord Academy for students who had formed a symbiotic bond, but hadn't left the Academy yet. (AUDIO: The Apocalypse Element)
