I am unaware of any full scholarship at UK universities (presumably for CS?) unless you complete an apprenticeship.

There are partly funded scholarships that I am aware of:

There is a bursary provided:

Nottingham Uni reduces student fee by up to 50%:

Siemens has a Digital Academy "scholarship" open for Newcastle and Sheffield students:

I don't know about your individual circumstances but:

If you are a UK student, the student loan system is reasonable and (TLDR) is basically a graduate tax that only takes 9% of your wage after a certain income and is also cancelled after 30 years so this should be something you look into if this is the route for you.

If have the right to work in the UK, you could look into apprenticeships as they can provide you a fully funded education as well as a job. Here are some good places to start, although more will be advertised from Autumn as that is when the recruitment cycle starts:

https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and...pprenticeships
https://www.apprenticeships.gov.uk/a...pprenticeships

If you are an international student that cannot afford the tuition, perhaps look at studying in other countries where tuition is free: Norway.

If you are a passionate sports person, (most) universities offer generous scholarships to support your studies eg: https://www.lboro.ac.uk/sport/perfor.../scholarships/

If there are money problems, maybe going to college to complete a higher diploma (HNC/D) in CS/IT will be helpful as they are far cheaper (I have seen a course for £2500 per year) and let you with experience.

The reason you wont find a full scholarship (In my opinion at least) is due to the funding system that is in place in the UK. In USA this is far more common as the funding system is much more expensive and less fair than the UK system.

To look for scholarships, try typing "[university name] [subject] scholarship "into your internet browser. This tool might help:

I hope this guide helps but I would suggest you research which route is best for you and speak to a careers advisor if possible about your next steps.
