Building on this success, the program expanded its reach to include several countries in the EMEA in 2022.

Do all students nominated by the current Champions/Faculty automatically get selected?

No, nominated students, like other applicants, are also required to go through the standard application process. However, the nomination or recommendation from the current Champions/Faculty does provide them with an advantage over other applicants, giving them an edge during the selection process.


Is it mandatory to nominate a minimum of three students?

We strongly advise nominating a minimum of three to five students to enhance the chances of being accepted into the program. If only one student is nominated and they are not selected following the application and interview process, the institution misses out on the opportunity to participate in the program. Therefore, nominating multiple students increases the institution's likelihood of securing a spot in the program.


Who can be an RPA developer? 

While possessing technical skills can be advantageous, it is important to note that anyone with an interest and motivation to learn can become an RPA developer. Surprisingly, many certified RPA developers worldwide are undergraduate students. In fact, over 90% of them hold college degrees, with the majority specializing in technical fields. Additionally, one out of five RPA developers pursued a business-focused course of study, while more than one in ten had degrees in other areas. This data suggests that the industry welcomes individuals with diverse skill sets and knowledge, making room for a broader range of talents and backgrounds.

Can I nominate students who will be in their final year in the upcoming academic year?

Can I apply to become a Student Developer Champion if I am in my final year of studies?

We encourage students who have more than one year remaining before graduation to apply for the program. This is because final year students typically have various commitments, such as internships, placement exams, and final year project submissions, which may make it challenging to fully engage in the program. We want to ensure that final year students can prioritize their academic requirements and successfully complete their studies without any hindrance from the program.
