Learn the big benefits of a small college – and why Loyalist students go on to do big things. Not in spite of our size but because of it.


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!).



Loyalist College may be small, but we’re making our mark in a big way when it comes to applied research.


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.




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.
