when ever you ask this question in the direction of the majority (those with a degree) you will without doubt get nothing but negative feedback. It is a case of those with a degree wanting to make that degree stand for something when it comes to the job, it does for a visa, but it isn't all doom and gloom as they paint it out to be.
No degree will have restrictions about where you can go legally and long term, but why not get a placement and then do a degree online while working. By the time you have enough confidence and some ground covered you have the degree and the experience to continue and pick from the pile.
I stopped asking people about reality without a degree as it comes back so negative every time. In reality if you apply for a few jobs and state you have no degree you will get a better idea of what is around for you to pick from.
The lack of degree restricts access to a visa only, and for the majority I wouldn't say having a degree stands for much as far as ability to teach goes, and the majority of employers know that.
Have a poke about, apply for a few positions and see what comes back, you will get a positive result from it at some point but it won't come to you.
