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

First, consider the necessary premises, preferably with multimedia equipment, laboratories, software, subscription to periodicals, updating the content of disciplines, the cost of utilities.

Bachelors need at least one lecture hall for 100 seats and four auditoriums with a capacity of 25 seats. In addition, depending on the specialty, a number of laboratories are required.

Masters require seven classrooms for 15 to 20 people and three classrooms for about 50 people. In addition, depending on the specialties, a number of special laboratories are required, but, compared to the bachelor’s level, their number should be greater, as well as the complexity and cost of equipment.

Thus, it can be argued that the number of classrooms, multimedia equipment, the complexity of laboratory maintenance, the cost of software products, the complexity of developing content for academic disciplines, the cost of relevant utilities significantly exceeds the relevant bachelor’s degree. It is almost impossible to quantify the excess of indicators in general for the master’s level, but it can be estimated due to the difference in the cost of utilities.

However, even without this component, it is clear that the index of the master’s level can not be less than 2.5.

In the current Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 1146, this index is equal to 1.3, which significantly reduces the estimated contingent, and hence the performance of HEIs, which have a significant percentage of applicants for a master’s degree.
