Payment by bank transfer

All school fees are payable by bank transfer by the first day of each term.  Please be careful to send the transfer to M East Sdn Bhd not Marlborough College as the bank will return payments at a charge for incorrectly named transfers.

All payments should be made in Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), the exact amount must be received and all bank charges are to be borne by the remitter.

Parents who do not have a MYR bank account can remit funds in Singapore Dollars (SGD) to our SGD account.  In this event, please transfer SGD (or other hard currency – HKD, GBP, USD) at the current exchange rate.  The SGD received will be transferred between our SGD and MYR account the following business day at the HSBC bank rate.  Any difference between the amount received and the amount due in MYR will be debited/credited against the following fee invoice.
