Loyola College FAQs

Ques. Which is the more superior college, Madras Christian College or Loyola College Chennai?

Ans. It depends on the course you want to study. Some of the courses of Loyola College like Bachelor of Humanities is excellent in terms of faculty and curriculum while Some courses of Madras Christian College beat Loyola College when it comes to the curriculum, e.g B.Sc.

Ques. Is Loyola College Co-ed?

Ans. Yes, Loyola College is co-ed for all PG Courses and Bachelors in Visual Communication. For rest courses, it is not co-ed.

Ques. Which college is better for BBA Course- MCC or Loyola College?

Ans. It entirely depends on what you want. If you want a wholesome experience of college life. I strongly suggest you join MCC. But if you're looking to study in college. Loyola will be a better option. MCC has a lot of diversity in its students with most of the students coming around from all parts of India. Whereas, you're more likely going to study with a majority of Chennai crowd at Loyola.

Ques. Is there any dress code at Loyola College?

Ans. There is no such thing called dress code, unlike some Engineering or Medical colleges. However, you can't wear torn jeans and a round neck tee shirt. What college wants from the students is that the proper dress. 

Ques. How is the Infrastructure of Loyola College?

Ans. Excellent infrastructure and a beautiful looking campus. The canopy of trees covering the pathways protecting you from the scorching sun of Chennai makes you never want to leave the campus once you enter, probably one of the best looking campuses in south India.

Loyola College Review

Remarks -
4 /10

All in all, Loyola College has got a good name outside and people look up to you on knowing that one is from Loyola College. But sadly that is the only good thing about the college. The college places very little or no emphasis on the overall development of students. The faculty is extremely mediocre having very less subject knowledge. The curriculum has not been updates in ages. But it is the best in Chennai and enjoys a good reputation throughout the country.
