COPENHAGEN, DENMARK: Denmark has kicked a foreign student out of the country for exceeding hourly part-time work regulations, despite Aarhus University’s efforts to hang onto one of its top students, the school said Saturday.
Marius Youbi, a 30-year-old engineering student, flew home to Cameroon on January 7 under an expulsion order requiring him to leave Denmark by January 8.
The Scandinavian country has some of Europe’s strictest immigration policies, and has repeatedly tightened its regulations in recent months to deter foreigners from seeking a new life in the country.
Working part-time as a cleaner to help pay for his studies, Youbi was found to have occasionally exceeded the 15 hours he was allowed to work per week.
“We disagree with this decision from the Danish immigration service,” university spokesman Anders Correll told AFP.
