    I want to study Theology with Rusangu. I have Bachelors in IT and Master’s in Computer Applications. But I do have questions regarding the application for the study on block release. Will I be exempted from some studies? If yes, how does that work? What is the immediate enrollment for this study? I am from Malawi
