Yes.
I only have science a levels so I am thinking of going for a biochemistry degree which is what I like. But I would like to travel in the future and I also like to teach so teaching English abroad seems like my ideal career

In general the programs that ask for a degree don’t specify what kind of degree you need-just a bachelor’s.
I couldn’t say for definite but I do know people who have signed up for these schemes without any degree at all and gone to China for the year to teach.

It's completely possible. Where were you thinking?

The main requirement for all ESL jobs is to hold a minimum of a 120hr TEFL course, I'd highly recommend to the course provided by i to i as it's the most comprehensive and also well recognised. I worked for a number of years as the recruitment manager for a chain of schools in China (I was based at HQ in Shanghai). The legal requirements set out to get a legal work visa at that time for candidates were a degree (in any subject), TEFL certificate, health check plus the associated documents from the school you're going to.

Good luck!
