The Korea Institute at The Australian National University was established in 2008 to foster a closer relationship between Australia and Korea through education, research and dialogue, while also promoting Korea's engagement with the Asia-Pacific region. The ANU Korea Institute seeks to extend and enhance the teaching of Korean language and a wide range of Korea-related subjects at ANU to strengthen the ties between Korea and Australia, and further the field of Korean Studies globally. Since it was established, the Institute has bolstered existing strengths in the humanities, enhanced research in the social sciences, fostered an expanding Korean language program and promoted active engagement in public affairs. The Korea Institute runs public events through the year including an annual Korea Update, manages the Sochon Foundation scholarship for postgraduate students, and hosts a schedule of distinguished visiting speakers.

The Korea Institute is led by the Director Ruth Barraclough and the Deputy Director Dr Eunseon Kim and is advised by an academic Board.
