I was a master degree student in Germany. Due to family and health-related issues, my study and research took more time than l expected and l had to prolong my study. And parellel to this development, l also had to extend my residence permit(study purpose). However, the German immigration authorities did refuse the extension of my residence permit and l was ordered to leave. I obeyed the order, paid my flight expenses myself and left country within the given time. I was at the end of my study when l left Germany and l completed my research practices online and currently working on my thesis. Recently l get an admission for my PhD from the US, UK and Poland. I am fully aware of the fact that my previous deportation story from Germany might circumvent my academic plans. Is there anyone here who have been able to get a Visa after deportation/removal? Additionaly, l do not have any entry ban for either Germany or Schengen Zone. I do not have criminal record. Note: l am a Turkish passport holder.

Then you have not been deported, since a deportation is only required if you do not leave withing the given timeframe.
§58 - Deportation (AufentG)
(1) Foreigners are to be deported if the obligation to leave the federal territory is enforceable, no period has been allowed for departure or such a period has expired, and voluntary fulfilment of the obligation to leave is not assured or supervision of departure appears necessary on grounds of public security and order. If one of the conditions stipulated in section 59 (1) sentence 2 becomes applicable within the period allowed for departure, the foreigner is, as a rule, to be deported before the period expires.
You can easily verify this yourself by looking for a special deportation stamp in your passport. The exit stamp will be placed near that stamp.
