It is difficult to summarise what the Kerala University is in a brief space.

One of the first 16 Universities in India, the University of Kerala was founded as the University of Travancore in the erstwhile princely state of Travancore (now southern part of Kerala and some neighbouring parts of state of Tamilnadu) in 1937. During the 7 decades since the University of Kerala grew and shrunk physically and transformed itself in many ways. 

Here are some of the unique facts about the University of Kerala:

  • The University has been publishing since 1946 the Journal of Indian History, a prominent publication in the area. The International Journal of Kerala Studies is also similarly an established Journal.
  • The Manuscript Library of the University is a treasure trove of Indian culture. The library has over 65,000 works in 30,000 copies mainly of palm leaf manuscripts. In addition, some paper manuscripts, a few copper plates, writings on Bhurjapatra (birch bark), Agarutvak (the bark of Amyris agallocha) and textiles are also found in the collection. The manuscript collection also includes those belonging to other different Indian states and nations such as Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Nepal etc. About eighty per cent of the collections are in Sanskrit. The initial moulds of scripts of modern Indian languages like Bengali, Marathi, Gujarati, Kannada, Telugu, Oriya, Assamese and Burmese are also found.
  • The Centre for Adult & Continuing Education (CACEE) received the UNESCO- NLM award for literacy in 2005.

  • The University Degree Certificates with Hologram and over 112 security features to prevent counter-feiting.
  • The National Assessment and Accreditation Committee has placed the University at the B++ grade.
