I have recently bought a Canon EOS 600D and I want to buy a UV filter to give extra protection to my EF-S 18-55 IS II.
And I additionally want to buy a lens hood as well.
Will I be able to use both at same time?

The other answers are correct: for this lens, the hood attaches to a bayonet on the outside of the lens, and the filter threads are still clear so that screw-in filters can still be added.
It should be noted, however that this isn't universally true: screw-in hoods are available, and for some lenses this is/was the OEM solution. Also, some filter options -- such as the large square filters from Cokin and Lee are pretty much always going to mean that there's no way for a hood to fit when using these systems. And lastly, if you've got a 77mm filter that you want to put on a lens with a 52mm thread you can use step-down rings to do so -- however I bet the hood won't fit over the large filter.
