UKRI have confirmed that international students (EU and non-EU) will be eligible for all Research Council-funded postgraduate studentships from the start of the 2021/22 academic year. The text of the August 2020 public statement is here https://www.ukri.org/news/ukri-funded-postgraduate-programmes-to-open-to-international-students/
Cambridge MRC DTP will be able to offer a limited number of studentships to international students, and funding will cover both fees and a stipend to support living costs. These international studentship awards will be subject to eligibility, and also the availability of complementary funding (to provide the differential to the international fee rate); we expect there to be keen competition for these places.
