The departments in the college, in addition to the regular programmes, offer short-term courses which are categorized into add-on courses and certificate courses. .The add-on courses primarily aim at sharpening the skills of the learners in the disciplines they major in. These courses are exclusively designed by the departments for their own students with the aim of horning their skills in the discipline concerned. The certificate courses, on the other hand, are meant for students from any departments and are basically meant to prepare them for competitive examinations and better employability skills. All these short-term courses have their own well- stated objectives, modules, and course outcomes which are realized with the help of course work and systematic instruction. The details of all the short-term courses offered by various departments in the college are as follows.
Government Arts and Science College Kondotty, popularly known as GASCK, was established in 2013 as per GO .(M.S) No.565/13/H.E.D dated 17/08/2013 and is located in a lush green village called Vilayil-Parappur which is about 12 KMs away from Kondotty town and 15 KMs far from Calicut International Airport. Affiliated to the University of Calicut, the college offers five undergraduate (UG) and two postgraduate (PG) programs which include new generation job-oriented programs like BTHM and Functional English. Within a short span of time, the college could find its niche in academic, social, cultural and athletic domains due to the committed and concerted efforts of the teachers, students, administrative staff and the local community around. The AISHE code of the college is C-48450
Located in a greenery blessed surrounding and engulfing purity of village life, the college functions as a prospective centre of knowledge and instruction for hundreds of students around who really belong to the under privileged sections in the society. The majority of the student community currently pursuing their studies at the college belongs to the different sections of minorities in the society. A good chunk of them are OBCs/SCs/STs. Though started in 2013, the academic environment in the college is on a par with any other well established institutions around.
As a bold step to further the right to and spread of education to the still side-lined sections in the society, the Government of Kerala in power in 2013, decided to set up government colleges in all constituencies where there is no such college. Mr. Mammed Unni haji, the then MLA of Kondotty Constituency took commendable initiative to find free land in a suitable location for a centre of higher education in his constituency. When the local leaders like Mr. Gafoor haji and Mr. Alavi Haji gave unparalleled support to bring the college to Vilayil, a village located at Cheeckode Panchayath and the Vidya Poshani Educational Trust donated the required land setting an imitable model, a distant dream for many underprivileged villages around turned into a surprising reality.
The committee of Madharul-Uloom Higher Secondary Madrasa, cheriyaparamb did all the required arrangements and facilities to start the college in 2013 in its building and the college was functioning there till it shifted to its own campus in September, 2016. Dr. K Abdul Hameed, Retired Principal, EMEA College of Arts and Science, Kondotty was the first Special Officer of the college. Then, Dr.AK Abdul Gafoor of Govt College, Menchantha, was given additional charge of Special Officer till the appointment of the first Principal Prof.K Jayakumar in 2013. The college, till now, has had remarkable contributions from successive Principals like Dr. Kunheenkutty, Dr. Vasudevan Nair, Dr. Abdul Latheef (in charge) Dr. Laila, Dr. Elizabeth, Dr. Muhammed Rafeeque, Dr. Haridasan and Dr. Krishnankutty. The college is now heading to great milestones under the dynamic principalship of Dr. AK Abdul Gafoor.
Learn to Prune is the motto of the college which implies that learning has to bring about cognitive and qualitative changes in the learners so as to enable them to locate and realise the skills and habits they have to sharpen to be adaptable and adaptive to the ever-changing world.
The college emblem consists of an open book, a pen and two elephants and eight stars. The open book and the pen symbolise the unrivalled position of reading and writing in acquiring and sharing knowledge. The elephants stand for the power that knowledge is capable of infusing to the learner in multiple ways and means and the eight starts stand for the core values or skills that learners have to strive for in the process of pursuing their studies, like systematism, commitment, perseverance, adaptability, scholarship, obedience, sociability, indebtedness.
The College Council consists of the Principal and Heads of the Department of each subject of study, two persons elected from the staff members, Librarian of the General Library and the Ministerial Head of Administrative Staff of the College Office. The Principal is the ex-officio President of the Council.

Wisdom square is the inner courtyard in the college and it houses a stunningly finished work of art. At the centre, there is an uncapped pen which is placed on the pages of an open book for the reader to resume reading from where he/she has stoppped. The courtyard is named wisdom square because the book and the pen on it are two integral tools to open up and enter the vast world of wisdom. The architect’s imaginative mind keeps the onlookers reminded that those who step in to the college have to seek knowledge, grow wise and reach higher aims only with those two powerful and transformative instruments of wisdom- Reading and Writing.
The square, built in 2021 and jointly funded by the former Principal, Dr. Abdul Gafoor, AK, Vice Principal Dr. Abdul Latheef V, building contractor, Nishad and College PTA is a centre of inspiration both artistically and academically. The architect is Mr. Rajesh K Pannikode.
The College has a systematic mechanism to collect feedback from all stakeholders- students, teachers and parents etc. The feedback forms, especially designed for the purpose, are given to the respondents to register their responses regarding the academic, administrative and infrastructure facility and service that the college provides. The feedback collection is done, either online and offline, from students at the end of each semester.
The links for online feedback forms can be accessed from the file below.
This form is to be filled up by each teacher after giving (online) classes and it will be used as a document for the future reference.
