Introduction. The state support for international cooperation is considered in the Law of Ukraine «About Higher Education» (article 66, chapter XII). As the presence of foreign contingent at the universities of any country is an important indicator of the development and attractiveness of this country, then, the main direction of the international cooperation of the higher educational institutions is provision of the services related to getting higher and postgraduate education for foreign citizens in Ukraine.
The article purpose is the development of complex of instrumental methods on the bases of application of expert evaluation for research educational space factor of migration and selection of the dominant factors influencing the formation of foreign contingent in the hierarchy of research at the macro, meso- and microlevels.
