If you start an application now:
- you will need to complete and submit it by noon on 23 November (even if the system says you have more time)
- it will not move over to the new system.
If you will not be ready to complete and submit your application by then, you will be applying via the new system from 2pm on 23 November.
The questions and information NLCF ask for will not change. You can see a full list of questions from the application form. This may help you prepare your application and decide when to apply.
