Transferring Money from UK to overseas Watch
Everything's happening last minute here, and I kind of need to pay my tuition fees in the next 12 hours - like 15k pounds (no pound sign on keyboards down under O___O)...so yeah
Also, is it possible just for my parents to pay directly from their account in the UK without transferring the money?
Any advice appreciated
Your bank will charge a fee of something like £25 and may give you a crappy exchange rate. You will be significantly better off if you lose a specialist FX broker like www.hifx.co.uk to transfer the money.
I don't think there is any way to do an international transfer in 12 hours.
