What should I do with my visa application if I may be eligible for UK citizenship?

So I'm a US citizen traveling to London in a month to obtain my MA.
I just filed for my Tier 4 student visa, and was about to send off the supporting documents today when I came to the realization that my biological father was born in the UK. I checked the other threads for some answers and noticed I might be eligible for citizenship.
If this is true, should I continue to file for a visa or just shoot for the citizenship?
Are there any benefits of being a citizen or subject that might come in handy for tuition or employment?
If I don't have to apply for a student visa, can I get the application fee back?
