Sikkim Govt College, Burtuk

Sikkim Government College Burtuk was established in 2012 as the second campus of Sikkim Government College Tadong to meet the increasing demand for higher education in the state . It acquired its own separate identity as an independent college when it became affiliated to Sikkim University in August 2014. This Institution had a very humble beginning from a few rooms in the DIET building with only 179 students and 8 teachers. Today Sikkim Government College Burtuk has its own independent sprawling campusspread over 3.4 hectares of land at the Old India Press complex in Balwakhani. The current enrolment is of 1383 students. In the eight years of its existence the student strength of the college has increased from a mere 179 to 1383.

Situated atop a picturesque hill with a panoramic view of the entire Gangtok town, this college with its quiet, idyllic environment has become ideal for learning and teaching. The institution offers under graduate honours courses in 7 subjects in humanities and Commerce . Our first batch of students graduated with flying colours in June 2015 with pass percentage being 98.8% and 97.6% in Arts and Commerce respectively. Our aim is to educate and equip our students with such knowledge, life skills and ethical values that will not only enable them to become worthy members of the society but will also help them to respond positively to the challenges and opportunities of our highly transitional society. Our philosophy of education has always been to meet the needs of theindividual student by encouraging meritorious students with awards and commendations and motivating weak and underperforming students with regular counselling and remedial classes through our teacher mentor system. Thus in Sikkim Government College Burtuk our constant endeavour has been to provide both individualistic and as well as holistic guidance to our students and thereby equip them for the challenges of life.
