I have received a PhD offer from an English university. I am currently living in France with a student residence permit (titre de séjour étudiant). My residence permit expired on August 2020 but I have renewed it twice since then (twice because of Covid-19 related reasons) and currently I have a receipt of a residence permit (récépissé de demande de carte de séjour) that is valid for 3 months until January 2021 (while waiting for the new residence permit to be issued).
My home country (Algeria) is border-closed due to Covid-19. I want to know whether it is possible for me to apply for UK's tier-4 Visa from Paris using my current receipt of the residence permit (récépissé de demande de carte de séjour)?
