Stemming from a desire to bring about positive change, this project uses Participatory Action Research (PAR) to determine what support systems are currently available to Refugee-Background Students (RBS) at the Victoria University of Wellington (VUW), and how these students can be better supported in the future. It builds on PAR undertaken with high school students in 2005 by another VUW research team, and also, at a broader level, it feeds into the 2006 Wellington Regional Action Plan for Refugee Health and Wellbeing. It is the first research specifically on support services for refugee background students within a New Zealand university.
