4.3.2 Justification of the list and size of indicators from the formula for the distribution of budget funds

The first requirement is fulfilled unquestioningly.

The second requirement is fulfilled only partially. Indeed, the larger the number of HEI in terms of contingent and the number of branches in which specialists with higher education are trained, the more opportunities there are to organize the educational component of the educational process. The organization of artistic events on the basis of own amateur performances in various fields allows to objectively raise the general cultural level of students. The richness of cultural life in the student years creates a strong foundation for the intellectual development of the specialist and his/her family in the future.

However, the developers of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 1146 for some reason limited the scale of HEIs only to students studying by state order. Contract students have no less the right to the educational component of the activity of the HEI. The state of Ukraine is interested in highly cultured specialists with higher education. Moreover, in recent decades, the development of the material base of the HEI is provided by almost 90 % at the expense of a special fund, which is formed at the expense of these students.In addition, large HEIs have advantages such as reduction of conditionally fixed costs for administrative and economic activities, concentration of the best research and teaching staff (RTS) in powerful specialized departments, availability of the possibility to equip laboratories with modern equipment, etc. However, there is no doubt that all these benefits only increase with the growth of the contingent of contract students.

In addition, the increase in the number of contract students indicates an increase in the authority of a particular HEI in society. This became especially relevant after the introduction of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 191 on the indicative cost of training, which significantly reduced the possibilities of dumping. This resolution needs to be revised, as it has reduced, but not eliminated, the possibility of establishing an undervalued tuition fee.

Thus, the third requirement is not fully met, as it does not take into account the interests not only of employers and students, but also the state to attract additional funding.
