Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology takes its name from the European settlers of Belleville, Ont.—a group of United Empire Loyalists. Loyalist students belong to a tight-knit campus community in the beautiful Bay of Quinte region, near beaches and provincial parks. A diverse program roster and specialized training facilities contribute to this college’s higher-than-average graduate employment rate.
Students can opt for diplomas, advanced diplomas, apprenticeships, or a bachelor’s degree in either journalism or nursing, in partnership with local universities. Loyalist’s main campus is in Belleville, and it operates a smaller campus in Bancroft. Suite-style residences are available at the Belleville campus.
Loyalist features a number of specialized training facilities, including a high-tech health care practice environment known as the human simulation lab. Meanwhile, students from the school of biosciences apply their skills in fully equipped chemistry, instrumentation, molecular biology and field biology laboratories. Research initiatives as complex as genetic engineering are within the scope of these facilities.
Skilled trades students practice in the state-of-the-art Sustainable Skills, Technology and Life Sciences Centre, while esthetician students offer a complete range of services at Loyalist’s fully equipped spa, made all the more appealing by its setting on the conservation area of the Belleville campus.
