Arriving and living in the UK
Working whilst studying in the UK – EEA/Swiss students
Most students from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland can work in the UK without restriction.
Bulgaria and Romania
From 1 January 2014 you can work freely in the UK. Until then, if you want to work you should have a registration certificate.
If you haven't already got authorisation it is unlikely the Home Office will process your application before 1 January so you may
have to wait until then to work in the UK.
Croatia joined the EU on 1 July 2013. If you want to work while studying in the UK then you must apply for worker authorisation
before starting employment.
