Meet Your FIA: Aretha

Arho Aretha Orien MSc in Molecular Medicine (Experimental Medicine) The Medical School
What was your favourite subject at school or college?
How did you decide which degree to take?
I have always loved chemistry and biology and I wanted to do a degree that encompassed both and as such my undergraduate degree was in Medical Biochemistry. Doing a molecular medicine master’s degree for me is an extension of my undergraduate degree because I get to do a lot more research and lab work.
What advice would you give to people about to choose a university course?
Choose a course based on what you are interested in because no matter the stress of university life the fact that you love what you do will always serve as a motivation. Also, do a lot of research about the course.

Much like the city of Sheffield itself that is home to two football teams (Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday) and the snooker championships, the University of Sheffield has a rich history of sports. Varsity is the annual sports competition that takes place every March/April over a period of 9 days and across 20 venues. It is between sports teams from the University and our rivals Sheffield Hallam University that started in 1997.
