Does the time being on a student visa count towards the UK citizenship application?

I understand that to apply for the UK citizenship you have to live in the UK for 5 years, but does it count the time you have been as a student (with a student visa) towards it? Thanks in advance.

Yes, it does count. Any permission to stay in the UK counts. The rule is you have to be legally in the UK.
