The outcome of International Undergraduate Program is formulated in accordance to University as well as Faculty visions and missions. The outcome of the program is to produce:
 Graduates with a comprehensive scientific education in all of biology disciplines.
 Graduates with ability to pursue further any career path in biology, particularly in Tropical Biology.
 Graduates with leadership and management skills to provide solutions to Tropical Biology problems.
 Graduates who embrace humanity, morality, and ethics as a base for scientific activities, as well as research, publication and daily conduct.
 Graduates with high competitiveness, intellectual and practical understanding of good science on Tropical Biology to pursue study in Biology and related fields at the graduate level
