2017-2018 Fee Structure
The BIS fee structure, although indexed against the elc fee structure, will be reduced for the academic year 2017-2018 to reflect the fact that not all the facilities are in place at this time. The amounts stated are payable per Term and there are 3 terms per academic year.


The term fees for Reception to Year 5 are displayed in the table below –



The term fees will be reviewed annually and an increase is to be expected as and when facilities become accessible to the students.


It should be noted that when the Primary Block and Swimming Pool are completed the basic term fee will increase to 75% of the Actual Term Fee. When the Bintulu Campus is complete, the basic term fee charged at BIS will be on par with the fees charged at elc International School.


All other Additional Fees will remain unchanged.
