Why choose small? We’ll give you 10 good reasons:
Small classes, big difference.
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.
Small college, big opportunities, huge network.
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!).
We're kind of a big deal when it comes to applied research.
Get access to the latest tools and technologies, learning resources and realistic practice environments that prepare you to be confident and effective in the workplace. Gain hands-on experience working with state-of-the-art technology in our biosciences labs and skilled trades workshops, engage in interactive education in our interprofessional simulation labs, and bring learning to life in our fully integrated Digital Media Centre.
Over $1M in student financial support annually.
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.
Future-focused learning centres and technologies.
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.
