I'm thinking about changing my undergraduate from Film to Creative Writing before I start uni, is it possible to become a teacher with a creative writing degree, if I were to consider that as a potential career option?

It might be possible- the usual rule of thumb is at least 50% of your degree has to match the national curriculum in your subject, so if your creative writing degree includes modules that might be relevant to English language or literature, you should be fine.

If your uni has a school of education, they'll probably be happy to help and advise you further!

As long as you can show potential, and have a passion for the subject, you will be fine.

In my course, there were people who had History degrees but completed a Computer Science PGCE.
