research is an important part of ur life if u become a lecturer. in some (malaysian)unis, preference will be given to those who do research on top of their teaching load when it comes to promotion.
and yes, u'll need at least a masters in whatever field u're doing. although its ok to not have a phd, u'll be considered like a 'second class citizen' amongst the teaching staff.. however, there are ppl who've taught in universities for years and yet only have a masters degree...
another thing.. i think u're supposed to graduate with at least a second upper, if u want to do ur masters degree directly after that.. if u get second lower, u'll need to work for several years before u can enter the programme(the length of time depends on individual univ)
