It would help us alot if you are more specific and provide greater detail. Where are you from? What is your current background? What are your interests? What subject do you want to teach? Where do you want to teach and at what level?

From my understanding, in order to teach in the UK at the undergraduate level, you must either have a Masters in the relvent discipline, or be a doctoral canditate. However, in order to teach at secondary schools, you would require a batchelors degree in the relevent subject area and a PGTC (Post-Graduate Teaching Certification).

There are several teaching and education career paths that you can take but youíll have to have at least an idea which area of work youíd prefer. Do you like elementary teaching? What about special education? You could also acquire a bachelorís degree in education first to see if youíll enjoy teaching and working in education institutions. There are several resources our there with information on several specialization in online degree program. You go through and see if thereís any specialization that appeals to you. This is about making a career choice that suits your personality and goals, so take time to understand what youíll be getting into. Good luck on your choices.

On a side note, if you're in it just for the money and want to get started as soon as possible, the games industry might not be the best place to start...
