I have learnt that MRes students in Oxford are first registered as probationary research student (PRS). I read the transfer guideline, and I became to wonder that whether it is possible for a student to enrol as a MRes but actually transfer to Dphil in transition period. Is it feasible?

DPhil / PhD needs 3.5 years of funding minimum and for the most part thats tied to a specific supervisor and project up front, so no, its not really possible to go in that "upwards" direction in any kind of "automatic" way. You would need to use the MRes to impress someone enough to invest about £100k in you - thats what a PhD student costs the supervisor, and for Oxford, they would want a student at Masters level to begin with.
