Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales



This field captures an overseas personal home, work or mobile phone number (not including UK mobile numbers).

Telephone numbers for the following third parties are not permitted: Agents or recruitment agency, companies that support international students studying abroad, referees (e.g. for UCAS), sponsors, university lecturers/ academics, international study centre, dummy telephone numbers.

Submission of shared telephone numbers is not best practice. Where there is a genuine reason for the provision of shared contact data, providers will need to request for a switch to be applied.

Validation in the provider portal will identify duplicate contact details.

Providers must return 00 (UK International direct dialling) and a valid country dialling code ( at the beginning of the telephone number.

Example Spain (from UK): 00341234567890, 00 (UK international access code) 34 (country code) plus telephone number (can include area code number if required).

Instructions on how to dial international numbers can be found - here.

At least one telephone number (Graduate.UKTEL , Graduate.UKMOB or Graduate.INTTEL) needs to be returned to enable the contractor the best possible opportunity to contact the graduate. However, it is recommended, provided these remain accurate for the graduate that providers return as many legitimate telephone numbers as are given to them by the graduate.
