The Malay College Kuala Kangsar (Malay: Kolej Melayu Kuala Kangsar, abbreviated as Malay College, MCKK, MC or Kolet, Koleq and sometimes dubbed "the Eton of the East", other than Mayo College, India) is a premier residential school in Malaysia. It is an all-boys and all-Malay school in the royal town of Kuala Kangsar, Perak.

MCKK is the first fully residential school in Malaysia. Established on 2 January 1905, it was originally known as the Malay Residential School of Kuala Kangsar. The school was the brainchild of R J Wilkinson, inspector of schools for the Federated Malay States (FMS). In a letter to the resident-general dated 24 February 1904 he wrote about "establishing at a suitable locality in the FMS, a special residential school for the education of Malays of good family and for the training of Malay boys for admission to certain branches of Government service".

MCKK awarded Cluster School of Excellence title by the Ministry of Education (Malaysia). Since 2010, the school was awarded with the High Performance School (SBT) title, a title awarded to Malaysian top schools that have met stringent criteria including academic achievement, strength of alumni, international recognition, network and linkages.

The school is one of the only two boarding school in Malaysia (the other is Sekolah Alam Shah) that are under royal patronage. The school's patron is the Conference of Rulers.
