Bharata Mata College is a nationally accredited first grade arts and science co-educational institution of higher learning in the aided sector, under Bharata Mata Educational Trust owned and managed by the Archdiocese of Ernakulam-Angamaly. Established in 1965 by His Eminence the late Joseph Cardinal Parecattil, the college is affiliated to the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. The college was included under section 2 (f) and 12 (b) of UGC Act 1956 in 1976 and accredited at the A level by NAAC in 2014.

The college is located in Thrikkakara, Kerala’s mythological capital, facing the Seaport –  Airport Road. Situated at a distance of just 12 Kms from the city of Kochi, it is easily accessible from Judgemukku on Edappally-Muvattupuzha Road in the North, and from NGO Quarters and Palli stop on the Kakkanad -Ernakulam Road in the South, in addition to the BMC bus stop on the Seaport-Airport Road. The CUSAT, NPOL, Model Engineering College, Ernakulam District Collectorate, lnfopark and CSEZ are the important neighbouring landmarks of the college.

Though it has a semi-urban location, Bharata Mata College largely caters to the higher education aspirations of socially, educationally and economically marginalized sections of a rural population belonging to different communities. More than 65% of the student community are girls. Started in 1965 as a junior college with five Pre-degree batches, the college today boasts of being a first grade college with 17 under graduate and 4 post-graduate programmes, 2 professional courses, 3 research centres and an off-campus centre.

The community comprises around 2500 students, nearly 121 teachers and about 36 members of the non-teaching staff. The dedication of the management and the community, combined with excellent infrastructural and teaching facilities help maintain high Standards in curricular and co-curricular spheres of the institution.

In keeping with the lofty vision of its founder, Bharata Mata College is a melting-pot of students from all communities and creeds, thus preserving a secular character while promoting the Christian ideal of love and service.
