The prerequisites required for a Master of Philosophy degree make it the most advanced research degree before the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D. or D.Phil.).
An M.Phil. is in most cases thesis-only, and is regarded as a senior or second master's degree, standing between a taught Master's and a Ph.D.
An M.Phil. may be awarded to graduate students, after completing several years of original research but before the defence of a dissertation, and can serve as a provisional enrollment for a Ph.D.
The M.Phil are aimed at students who anticipate a career in which research plays a major role and who want to focus on an independent piece of research.
Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD or Ph.D. or DPhil) or a Doctorate of Philosophy, from the Latin Doctor Philosophiae , is a type of doctorate awarded by universities in many countries. The degree varies considerably according to the country, institution, and time period, from entry- level research degrees to higher doctorates.
A person who attains a doctorate of philosophy is automatically awarded the academic title of doctor.
During the studies that lead to the degree, the student is called doctoral student or PhD student.
