A lot depends on what background you have. For young people wishing to enter the teaching profession a degree is virtually obligatory and so many paths into university education exist now that it is difficult to justify not having a degree.

However, some mature people with valuable experience in other fields can have their experience and knowledge assessed and, if they also do well on their TEFL course, may be seen as having a useful conribution to make.

You don't say anything about your background so I can't comment. If you wish to use your TEFL certificate as a means of paying your way around the world, then I'm sure that not having a degree won't hinder you. If you wish to make a real career in the UK, however, you will have to think about the long-term outlook and consider what qualifications you need to accumulate.

I am also interested in teaching esl in the U.K. as I am planning to move there. I have a university degree (English Lit), a TESL certificate, and have been teaching adults for the past two years ( although not in ESL). I also have dual passport status ( British and Canadian) Are there many opportunities for someone of my background in London in this field?
