I really like studying in the laboratory, such as genetics and microbiology. Field courses really open students’ horizons to appreciate the environment more and interact with the community. The UI Biology Department invites us to appreciate environmental biodiversity more and think more critically to maintain a good natural balance for the sake of Indonesia’s natural preservation.

As an alumni, I am grateful to be able to study at the UI Biology Department. The curriculum taught facilitated my interest in conservation, and helped me study the biological sciences comprehensively. This is also greatly helped by the various extracurricular activities at Biology UI, such as the Comata Wildlife Study Group, the Canopy Plant Lovers Student Unit, and the Special Interest Group in Marine Biology (SIGMA-B UI). During my college years, I actively participated in these three activity units which exposed me to various research experiences and conservation activities in various national parks in Indonesia. In addition, the Department of Biology at UI instills scientific thinking and orientation on conservation and sustainability to students

The educational curriculum at the Department of Biology, University of Indonesia offers many choices of research areas of interest during my undergraduate studies. The compulsory courses that I took in the first and second years of study really helped me map out the research area of interest that suited me, namely the interaction of plants with microorganisms. All extracurricular activities offered at the Department of Biology, University of Indonesia, have shaped my current personality, such as HMD Biology, FMIPA UI and SIGMA B-UI.
