Welcome to Thunchan Memorial Govt. College Tirur
“Education should be imparted with a view to the type of society that we wish to build. We are working for a modern democracy built on the values of human dignity and equality. These are only ideals; we should make them living forces. Our vision of the future should include these great principles”
It gives us immense pleasure in welcoming all of you on behalf of the entire campus community of the Thunchan Memorial Government College, Tirur. The college was established in the socially and economically backward area of Vettom Panchayath, Malappuram, Kerala, driven by the keen desire of a group of people in this area, recognizing the need for economic empowerment through higher education for all socially marginalized groups who had been deprived of their right to education and employment. The college works to create a breed of qualified, innovative, and dynamic professionals for different sectors of society, industry, self-employment, academic and research institutions, encouraging them to make vibrant contributions in their respective fields.
The college was started as a junior college with a Pre-Degree course in 1980. The college became a Degree College in 1991 and achieved P.G. College status in 1995 and the Department of Arabic was upgraded as Research department in 2018. We maintain affiliation with the University of Calicut since inception. Admissions to the programmes adhere strictly to merit-based criteria set by the Calicut university. The College currently comprises eleven academic departments and a skill acquisition centre. Supported by various service centers like LAN lab, INFLIB Net, Audio Visual Lab, Language lab, and the Central Library, the college offers 5 undergraduate programmes in Mathematics, Physics, Commerce, Arabic, and Malayalam. Additionally, it provides four postgraduate programmes in Mathematics, Commerce, Arabic, and Malayalam. One integrated PG programme in English and Media studies and a Ph. D programme in Arabic are also offered. Presently there are 1010 students, 47 qualified teachers, and 17 non-teaching staff.
