Admission Notices

    Government Arts College, Coimbatore, had a very humble beginning when it was founded in 1852 as an Anglo-Vernacular School. It became a middle school in 1861. In 1867 it became a high school. In 1868, First of Arts ( F.A. ) classes were started and in 1869 the first University classes were started. In 1870 it became a second grade college. Thus, the college came into existence during the colonial rule long before the establishment of the University of Madras. The products of this college had actively participated in India’s freedom movement and thus, the classrooms of this ancient institution have determined the destiny of India in obtaining its freedom. In 1964, it became a first grade Post Graduate College. During the last 155 years of its existence, it witnessed a steady development in all walks of academic life. The college is situated in the heart of the city with a sprawling campus area of 13.6 acres.

    This institution can rightly claim the status of a pioneer in many academic fields. Being the oldest college in this region and in the Bharathiar University area, it has been the torch-bearer of knowledge for generations of scholars, academicians, entrepreneurs, politicians, jurists and civil servants. Again, it has so many firsts to its credit. It was here that co-education was introduced in 1931– nearly two decades before the establishment of women’s college in this region. It was also the first to realize that students imbibe knowledge easily and rapidly when it is fed to them through their mother tongue, which in turn led to the introduction of Tamil medium classes for both the science and humanity courses from which many other colleges shy away till this day. The Government Arts College, Coimbatore, is the first institution in Bharathiar University area to start the post graduate course in 1964 and it is also the first to open evening college courses in 1967 to cater to the needs of the employed and the workers of this highly industrialized city. The UGC, pleased by the steady and comprehensive growth and development of the institution, granted it autonomy in 1987 which provided yet another feather to its cap making it the only Government institution in Bharathiar University area to acquire such status.

    The college has 16 Departments besides the Physical Education Department and the General library with permanent staff members, of which many hold Ph.D Degrees and M.Phil. Degrees. Presently this college offers 15 UG, 10 PG, 13 M.Phil. and 12 Ph.D. programmes under the regular stream and it offers 1 UG Diploma, 3 PG Diploma, 5 UG and 5 PG programmes under the self-supporting stream of Bharathiar University. Besides this, the college offers 3 UG courses in the evening college. In all, the college offers 67 academic programmes at present catering to the needs of students belonging to various walks of life and economic strata.
    Re-accredited by the NAAC in 2006 with A-Grade status, this institution has made innovations in the existing curricula as well as the evaluation system. New avenues towards academic excellence have been introduced in the form of Restricted Choice Based Credit System (RCBCS), General Electives and the system of earning additional credits.The college with its various research departments awarding M.Phil. and Ph.D. Degrees, Internal Assessment Examinations, compulsory Value Based and Environmental Education to all III year UG students, etc. has elevated its status on par with that of an University.The Tamilnadu Government has implemented a compulsory Computer Literacy Programme (CLP) from 1999-2000 onwards for the benefit of all non-computer UG students, so that the entire student community passing out of this college after graduation is in a position to join the main stream of the present day competitive and challenging computer world. The college has a Placement Cell, Youth Red Cross Society, Fine Arts Club, Women’s Empowerment Cell and Career Guidance and Counselling Centre besides Four Wings of NCC and Five Units of NSS.
