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

Calculation 2. Adjustment of calculation 1 for the duration of training.

The difficulty in comparing the RNS index for bachelor and master lies in the different duration of study and the different structure of student involvement in contact with teachers. Bachelor’s degree is 4 years (8 semesters) and provides 240 credits. Assume that the eighth semester is devoted to writing a thesis (this is possible because it is also possible to take into account the availability of internships during the first years of study). Then the number of hours for bachelor’s degree will be 6,300 hours (210 credits×30). Given the logic given in calculation 1, we obtain:

It should be noted that the RNS index coincides with the number of full-time units required for the preparation of bachelors only for the first calculation, as the calculation period is 1 year. In essence, the RNS is only a relative indicator that allows to compare the time and workload of teachers in the process of preparing applicants for different levels and forms of education.

To calculate the index of the level of education Il it is necessary to calculate the RNSmaster. Here we assume that during the study of one bachelor is the release of three streams of masters. We also assume that the third semester of master’s training is more focused on writing a thesis. Then:

Within the specified adjustment we get the value of IR for the second level of education 2.1, in contrast to the index of the current version of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers No. 1146, Il = 1.3.
