Payment methods 

The British Council cannot accept payments made from banks (or other financial institutions) sanctioned by the UK or any other relevant jurisdiction. Where the British Council discovers evidence of payment from a sanctioned bank and/or sanctioned financial institution we will freeze all funds related to that payment and will be unable to deliver the service for which the payment was intended. Please therefore ensure that you do not make payments from an account in a sanctioned bank and/or sanctioned financial institution.

  • We accept payment in cash, credit card (MasterCard or Visa), cheque or bank draft in Ringgit Malaysia. Cheques and bank drafts should be made payable to ‘British Council’. Your full name and student number should be written on the back of the cheque.
  • We cannot accept payment of course fees in instalments. All fees must be paid in full at the time of registration. 


  • If a student wishes to transfer to another level, this must be agreed by both class teachers and a Manager. Any transfer is subject to the availability of places in the class.

Refunds and Credits – Course fees 

The British Council cannot make payments to banks (or other financial institutions) sanctioned by the UK or any other relevant jurisdiction. If you request a refund to be sent to an account at a sanctioned bank and/or sanctioned financial institution, you will be asked to nominate an alternative method of payment that does not breach sanctions. Failure to provide an alternative method of payment will result in non-payment of the relevant funds.
