Hi im from india

Hello Im from India.
Im a student here doing Masters by research in the field of bionanotechnology.
I have been here since six months. I have done Bachelors in Biotechnology from India.

And I am looking to apply for permanent residence in the future.
As I have my blood relatives here, I can apply via sponsored migrant section.
And My course Masters by research (2 year) has 50 points based on my field. So I will be eligible to apply after my masters.

But the confusion begins now as I have an option of upgrading my course to PhD and adding just one a half year to the masters course (2+1.5) to get this degree. Tempting but I can apply for PR once I finish my course that is only after 3.5 years wheras as in Masters by Research I can apply after 2 years. Also, the bridging visa time or the processing time for PR after PhD I have heard is way less than the processing time after Masters.

I was thinking of doing my Masters and then apply for PR and in the bridging time, apply for a job or PhD from start,
Or
I can upgrade into PhD and then apply for PR after 3.5 years. I hope the processing time is less in it because I want to get PR as soon as possible.

So I want to know which is the best option I should go for in minimum time.

Please advice me as I am very confused.

Hi jafarhasan and it seems one way or another you've got plenty of study ahead of you.
As to qualifying for PR, that will to some extent depend on you getting your qualifications approved in assessment for a particular occupation and if you'll have family resident here to sponsor you, that means you need less points for Immi approval under the existing system, the system undergoing change shortly it is expected.
There is a priority sysem and that will ultimately determine how long it will take for a visa application to get to being considered and then processed.
Bridging visas can be a problem for they can make it difficult for people to find an employer and may restrict what work you are allowed to do.

You'll find some sticky and discussion threads in the Visas & Immigration section that have a lot more information.
You may want to consider employer sponsorship.
