This study proposes an alternative model for crafting research into ways to ameliorate the achievements of Pasifika students in tertiary education. This model, aua’i i le galuega (direct involvement) was developed by Pasifika students with reference to the notion of 'vaka' or canoe to represent the different factors which shape their educational journey. It is intended that this model will have application for other minority student groups to actively participate in the development of research into issues of direct importance to them.

To argue that the PBRF will have a positive effect of strengthening research-led teaching, especially in the universities.
