Caught between Internationalisation and Immigration: The Case of Nepalese Students in Denmark
Valentin, Karen
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v5 n3 p56-74 Win 2012
An explicit marketisation and national profiling of Denmark as an attractive country for foreign students has resulted in an increasing number of students from poor countries in the global South, including Nepal, being admitted to Danish colleges and universities. The influx of students from these countries has led to several accusations against them of using enrolment in educational institutions primarily as an entrance point to the Danish labour market. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork among Nepalese students in Denmark this article addresses the intersection of internationalisation of higher education and immigration policy in a Europe with tightened immigration rules for certain nationalities.
