there is a rough structure:

1. Why are you applying for your chosen course(s)?
2. Why does this subject interest you? Include evidence that you understand what’s required to study the course, e.g. if applying for psychology courses, show that you know how scientific the subject is.
3. Why do you think you’re suitable for the course(s)? Do you have any particular skills and experience that will help you to succeed on the course(s)?
4. Do your current or previous studies relate to the course(s) that you have chosen? If so, how?
5. Have you taken part in any other activities that demonstrate your interest in the course(s)?

it needs to be more academic than non-academic- you can mention other activities you do, like sports etc., but there needs to be more academic info

hope than helps xx
