Ranked one of Canada’s Top 50 research colleges and no. 4 in Canada for Research Income Growth by Research Infosource Inc., Loyalist offers unparalleled experiential hands-on learning opportunities through applied research and community partnerships.

At Loyalist, you’re a name, not a number. Small classes mean that you get more one-on-one time with faculty and hands-on experience working with industry tools and equipment. We want you to enter the workforce with confidence, knowing that you’ve learned from industry experts and have the skills you need for success in your chosen career field.

At Loyalist, learning goes beyond the classroom. Enrich your education with work placements, field trips, trade shows, work-integrated learning, guest speakers and community events. Our faculty members can open doors to valuable workplace connections, industry events, local and international placement opportunities and, quite possibly, to your next job (high five!).

Cost should never be a barrier to your studies. That’s why we provide more than a million dollars each year through student awards, bursaries, scholarships and on-campus employment initiative opportunities. Our friendly Financial Aid team is also available to help you navigate funding options such as OSAP.

We’re committed to investing in our infrastructure to create innovative learning spaces with state-of-art technologies to help you prepare for the jobs of tomorrow. In 2022, Loyalist will open new culinary and spa facilities, a makerspace and a health and wellness centre. Take a peek:

Loyalist College is part of a vibrant and friendly community that boasts small-town warmth while offering big-city amenities. With so many natural treasures to explore as well as thriving art and culinary scenes, the Bay of Quinte region has become one of Ontario’s hottest tourist destinations. What’s more, Loyalist is perfectly positioned between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Hop on a train or take the 401 to reach these urban centres for a weekend getaway!

We get it. Life’s busy. You’re busy. That’s why we offer more than 70 full-time programs as well as part-time learning, distance and continuing education to fit your schedule. 

Success is a series of small choices. Take the first step by choosing Loyalist College for your postsecondary studies. Then, build on your Loyalist credentials with a second diploma or university degree through our more than 100 university agreements across Canada and beyond.
