International Student with Bahar

August 30, 2018

Season 1, Episode 9. Bahar got a taste for the relaxed German lifestyle on a short visit to a village that left her hungry for more. She'd studied English language and literature in Istanbul, so when she heard of an English-language Masters in British and North American Studies in Freiburg, it was a no-brainer to apply.

Bahar talks us through her experience getting a student visa in Germany as a Turkish citizen, including what bank account she needed and how a 2017 law introducing fees for international students impacted her program. Now approaching the end of her program, Bahar reflects on her experience throughout the program, discusses her research interest on immigrant identity, and shares her ideas about what she'll do after graduation.
