Changes to the Apply Online facility for Tier 4 customers and Premium Service Centres.
From noon on Friday 26 February the old UKVI Apply Online service will be turned off.
On 28 January the new Online Application Service was launched on http://www.gov.uk for Tier 4 applications and Premium Service Centre appointments.
Information from GOV.UK:
” You must apply online for a Tier 4 (General) student visa.
You’ll need to have your fingerprints and photograph taken at a visa application centre (to get a biometric residence permit) as part of your application.
You’ll have to collect your biometric residence permit within 10 days of when you said you’d arrive in the UK (even if you actually arrive at a later date).
You may be able to get your visa faster or other services depending on what country you’re in – check with your visa application centre. ”
