International Recruitment

Loyalist College has partnered with education agents around the globe to recruit students for our campus. We are always excited to partner with new agents for more diverse classrooms.

Loyalist College offers international students the ideal combination of academic excellence, extra-curricular activities and intercultural experience.  We provide career-oriented, relevant programs,  outstanding faculty and staff, state-of-the-art facilities and a full range of services to support student success.  Students get to know their professors as they share industry experience and contacts through hands-on and applied learning.  Loyalist’s placement rate for our graduates is consistently one of the highest for an Ontario College and a recent survey shows that 95% of our students would recommend our College to a friend.

Our history

We are a publicly funded post-secondary institution and our diploma, post-graduate, certificate and degree-pathway programs meet the high educational standards required by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development within the Government of Ontario and are recognized around the world.

Our community

Belleville is a safe and friendly city along the scenic Bay of Quinte and is close to lake Ontario. Belleville has a population of approximately 49,000.  Belleville is ideally located between Toronto and Ottawa, Ontario.  There is easy access to the major highway, train and bus services.

Belleville is a city rich in history and natural beauty – a desired retreat for those wanting to escape the frantic life of the big city.  Our downtown area is lined with century-old storefronts, casual dining venues and quaint shops. The Quinte Mall offers modern shopping facilities, restaurants and cinemas.  We are close to Canada’s newest wine-producing region and the beautiful beaches and of Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edwards County.  We have a diverse climate, celebrating all four seasons.  There are many year-round activities in the area to enjoy such as golfing, sailing, swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, skiing, outdoor skating and ice fishing.
