Dr. Alexander (Sandy) MacDonaldEach year we welcome students from a broad range of ages and educational backgrounds to college centres across the province. Students come from all over Canada, and increasingly from around the world, to learn and live in an environment where the students’ professional and personal development are of the utmost importance.

At Holland College, student success is our top priority. As a college community, we believe that our students achieve the success they want and deserve through the high quality of our programs, instructional staff and facilities, and the motivation this learning environment provides. We are committed to ensuring that students have the skills and expertise they require for successful employment in today’s marketplace.

Holland College programs consist of practical, industry driven curriculum that prepares our students to enter their chosen field with confidence. All of our instructors are highly qualified with a great deal of industry experience and expertise. At Holland College, our small class sizes ensure that instructors have time to get to know their students, personalizing the learning experience. Holland College centres offer students state-of-the-art facilities featuring the most advanced learning materials and technology.

In addition to enjoying your program of choice, Holland College offers you the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities.
