has determined that increase in payment for providing paid services in the
system of education in 2009-2010 academic year should
not exceed an officially determined inflation level over the previous calendar
contained in the approved today during the Governmental session resolution “On
improvement of a mechanism of regulation of payment of services in educational
area”. The document has been elaborated by the Ministry of Economics of Ukraine.
results of checks conducted by the State Price Inspection of the Ministry of
Economics significant deviation of levels of payment for study in higher
educational institutions within the regions and certain higher educational
institutions has been fixed (from UAH 1.7 to 10.2 thousand), which cannot be
explained by differences in the educational process but proves insufficient
economic grounding of such payment.
a transparent mechanism of regulation of prices in the process of forming of
payment for education by the state educational institutions entails the
situation that determination of cost for students not included into the state
order (studying on the contract basis) is carried out taking into account
economically ungrounded expenses, which increases the sum of such paid service
up to 40% for internal studies and up to 200% for correspondence education.
particular, cost of education on the contract basis groundlessly included
expenses for major repairs in full amount (instead of including such expenses
only in case of demolishing of buildings, constructions etc.), expenses for
payment of scholarship, purchase of land etc.
Economics Minister of Ukraine Bohdan Danylyshyn stressed: “The main result of
realization of provisions of the Resolution will become introduction of
economically grounded payment for services which can be provided by the state
educational institutions. Also this decision will facilitate curbing of
inflation processes in the social area”.
