Local Statements

There are reports of false Erasmus Plus scholarships being advertised online. The fraudulent ads target students wishing to study in Canada with deceptive messages urging them to pay an Erasmus Plus registration fee.
 
Erasmus Plus is the European Union’s signature higher education scholarship programme for students from around the world. The programme doesn’t require an application fee and students can apply through their home university.
 
Never pay upfront fees without verifying the source and legitimacy of the information.
 
For Erasmus Plus programme applications, you are encouraged to deal directly and solely with your home university.
