phd thesis vs dissertation

Are the words (thesis and dissertation) used interchangeably in English, or is there a different between these terms? Is it possible to use Master̉‘s thesis and PhD thesis?

There is a difference between the terms. A student seeking his/her master’s degree works on a thesis; one seeking a Ph.D. works on a dissertation.

General information about the submission of MPhil and doctoral theses is published on the Higher Research Degrees website.
Deadlines for the submission of dissertations and theses for graduate qualifications are prescribed in section 12 of the Personal Programmes of Study Regulations.
