Extremely poor experience.

I am an external masters student with Macquarie University and have had a very poor experience thus far. I have been frequently met with an overt disinterest, distrust, and overall lack of concern by Macquarie University's administration staff and extremely poor communication to boot. I have often made several requests to get in contact with a Head of Department or Academic, which increases the likelihood of a concern being rectified, but am similarly received with a response of 'how did you get this number?'. I was also unfortunate in missing an internship opportunity with a prominent human rights organisation due to the slow and lacklustre communication shown by MQ. Having studied externally with two other institutions I definitely feel disadvantaged with Macquarie University and have thoroughly removed my recommendation.
