4.3.1 Justification of the size of indices in the formula of distribution of budgetary funds

The values Il  = 1.3 for the second (master’s) level and Il  = 0.8 for the third (educational-scientific) level do not seem to be sufficiently substantiated. Substantiation of the values of this index is proposed on the basis of determining the relative need for staff (RNS) for the provision of educational services. The difficulty in comparing the three levels of higher education in this case lies in the different duration of study and the availability of the scientific component at the third level.

When determining the relative need for staff, it is assumed that part of the classes are conducted in groups (a total of N), and part – in the combined streams of lectures. Also in calculations provide correlation (depending on a kind of works) or with 450 contact hours on one rate of the teacher, or with 600 hours of the maximum loading on one rate of the teacher.

The numerator of formula (4.12) is determined taking into account the following provisions:

– the distribution of classes within the ECTS credit is 30 % of classroom classes and 70 % of independent work (this ratio can be taken on average for both bachelor’s and master’s levels, regardless of specialties). That is, 30 % of the number of credits is contact hours (CH):

– in classroom work 50 % of classes – lectures that can be combined into M streams:
