The Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) (sometimes Ph.M.) is a postgraduate research degree.
An M.Phil. is in most cases thesis-only, and is generally regarded as a senior or second Master's degree, standing between a taught Master's and a Doctor of Philosophy (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.
