This survey, on the theme of "employability", investigated the relationship between skills for being employable and university education, and made comparisons between Japan and Korea. In each of the countries, 100 responses were received from undergraduate students, for a total of 200 responses. The first result was that students seemed to have a different view of their grades. In Korea, grades are often emphasized in job hunting, so those who felt that they had acquired the skills necessary for employment during college also had good grades. In Japan, however, the emphasis in job hunting is on "gakuchika", which means what one has done in college. This resulted in a lack of correlation between grades and the feeling of having acquired skills, even though the respondents felt that they needed to obtain a higher level of skills than in Korea. In addition, as a trend, many respondents of both Japan and Korea were consistent in their evaluation of the school in terms of "evaluation of the course","evaluation of the teachers", and "evaluation of the evaluation system". Therefore, we can guess there was no significant difference between Japan and Korea in terms of evaluation of the school curriculum as a whole.
