Pasifika Education recognises its leadership role in Pacific education and development.

This brings responsibilities to improve educational knowledge, practice and support services in Pasifika education.

Our approaches to meeting such responsibilities is informed by the development and use of our own unique perspectives and paradigms, which are informed by our core values. We are also committed to developing professional and cultural networks that will help us meet those responsibilities.


Pasifika-relevant courses and studies

Our faculty has an exciting range of courses that cover aspects of Pasifika knowledge and experience. These courses are informed by the most recent research, community perspectives and taught by staff who are leaders in the relevant fields.

Please note that some courses are delivered by Pasifika Education experts from the School of Critical Studies in Education, while others are taught with or by staff located in other Schools within the Faculty of Education and Social Work.

The School of Critical Studies in Education is well-placed to provide supervision for postgraduate research at masters and doctoral level.

Opportunities to engage with Pacific education exist within different curriculum and professional practice courses across the faculty’s programmes.
