Next, focusing on a given logic, determine the value of the index of higher education level (*I** _{l }*). Immediately note the following. During the year, the master’s degree applicant receives 60 credits, which is equal to the number of credits for the bachelor’s degree. However, for the university, the complexity and cost of providing such a number of loans at the master’s level significantly exceeds the amount of these indicators at the bachelor’s level. Lectures for bachelors are held for streams numbering from 50 to 150 applicants, and practical and laboratory – for an academic group of 25 applicants (sometimes, depending on the capacity of laboratories, 12–15 applicants). Whereas for masters lectures are held for 15 applicants (with a few exceptions – for 30–45 applicants), and practical and laboratory – for a maximum of 15 applicants.

Given the differences in the duration of training, it will be necessary to perform a number of calculations, which will calculate the relative need for staff (RNS) for a conditional 100 people with different levels of education.

*Calculation* 1. Comparison of RNS for bachelor and master within one year of study.

For 60 credits per year, the number of hours for both the bachelor’s and master’s levels will be 1,800 hours. Classroom work accounts for 540 hours:

Assume that the flow of applicants at the bachelor’s level is equal to 100 people in four academic groups of 25 people (*N* = 4), combined into one stream (*M* = 1):

*RNS** _{bachelor}* = 3 corresponds in its content to the provision of 3 rates of scientific and pedagogical staff.
