If you are a national of one of the full EEA member states (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Republic of Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) or Switzerland, you do not currently need permission to work in the UK and there are no restrictions on the number of hours you can work. If you are from Croatia please see our page 'Information for students from Croatia' for information about how many hours you can work and what you need to do to access the labour market.
You are entitled to enter the UK freely and have an automatic right of residence for up to three months without needing to demonstrate that you are exercising a right of free movement, for example, to study or work. Once you have been accepted on a course of study, you have the right of residence in the UK for as long as your course lasts. If you wish you can apply for an EU residence permit to prove your right to live in the UK as an EU citizen. This costs £65.00 but may be useful to obtain so that you can prove your lawful residence in the future, if required to do so. You can read more about this at https://www.gov.uk/eea-registration-certificate
