Abstract 

We conducted a pilot study of the mentoring scheme for Master of Engineering international students at the University of Adelaide. The scheme aims to provide a smooth transition into the new learning environment and to support students in academic matters. This is achieved by integrating the supporting activities for the initiation, adjustment and settling-down stages into a student-centred structured program. The program was conducted over a period of time sufficient for students to reach a stable state of adjustment.
