You will not be able to make any sponsor applications for any tier visa of the points based system from 1730 on Friday 19 February 2010 to 0800 on Saturday 20 February 2010 UK time. This is to enable the new IT system for student Tier 4 sponsors to be set up.

The system covers tools and applications for the points-based system; the self-assessment tool, the sponsor management system and sponsor applications. These will all be unavailable from early Friday evening to Saturday morning.
