This field records the graduates UK mobile telephone number

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales



This field captures a personal UK mobile telephone number for the graduate.

Mobile 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 mobile numbers.

Submission of shared mobile 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.

A UK mobile number must start with 071, 072, 073, 074, 075, 07624, 077, 078 or 079 and have at least 10 digits. If you have instances of numbers beginning with 070, they must not be returned in this field, instead being returned in UKTEL. This is due to 070 numbers being predominately used as call forwarding or temporary numbers for businesses, which we do not wish to engage with via SMS as this may result in survey access by a third party.

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 that provided these remain accurate for the graduate, providers return as many legitimate telephone numbers as are given to them by the graduate.
