Monash University Korean Studies aim to engage the wider community in Korean Studies activities at Monash and help students improve the vocational skills they require for life after graduation. Monash Korean Studies holds a regular outreach programme in which staff visit local schools to promote interest in Korea and Korean Studies. Each year Monash Korean Studies holds a Korean Speech Contest which invites contestants from the Melbourne Metropolitan region to put their language skills to the test. In September, Monash Korean Studies holds a Korea Week of cultural activities designed to inspire students and the wider community. Monash University Korean Studies is also actively helping students successfully find employment after graduation through its internships and student teaching assistantships programme.
