Abstract: This paper describes the development of the Integrated Bridging Program-Research (IBP-R) and its influence on other researcher education programs at the University of Adelaide. It describes how the emphasis has shifted from a remedial language program for international research students to a program that empowers students as autonomous 'ethnographers' of their practice as well as explicitly develops the generic and discipline-specific skills and competencies necessary for postgraduate study. It also demonstrates how a concurrent program that engages with the students' supervisors and embeds researcher education in institutionary practices has facilitated genuine cultural exchange. The paper further details how the program has become increasingly individualized based on the various needs of its participants. It shows how local students have been engaged and how its principles have been applied in other researcher education programs at the University. Practical tools arising from the IBP-R are also presented. Finally, the possibility of programs based on its principles are their potential for facilitating student exchange and international research collaboration are explored.
