The shape of education changed with time as the world opened to borderless, distance, and virtual learning. The confinement of students in the four-cornered classrooms transformed to globalized educational milieu. Side by side with the structural and instructional transformations of education emerged new pedagogical principles and paradigms at all levels in the hierarchy of academic institutions. One shift included the culture of research among students, especially in higher educational institutions. The contradictory perceptions of students on research integration provided a relevant springboard on the determination of the students' perception in a certain locale, particularly at the Graduate School of La Consolacion University Philippines. It was interesting to identify the perceptions of a particular community of students on research integration: optimism on the relevance of research in the current educational trends of globalization and internationalization or pessimism posed by the fear on the hurdles and difficulty of the conduct of research.
