Is "Use the given phrases" correct English or is "Use the phrases given" correct?

I guess we'd need to see these fragments in context to pick the most appropriate one.

Examples: "Use the phrases given below in a paragraph." , "Use the given phrases in a paragraph."

"given information" is the information provided. It's usually used in an academic exercise, usually in math.
