Why does Jersey have a UK postcode if it’s not part of the UK ?

It is NOT a part of the UK, however for administrative reasons both their version of what in the UK would be a National Insurance number, and their postal code system, use the same format as those within the UK. ~ The channel islands are the last remaining part of the Dukedom of Normandy, which conquered England in 1066. We are therefore a colony of the Channel Islands.

It doesn't; it has a Jersey postcode using the same format as the UK

it is Part of Great Britain
Channel Islands are part of Great Britain not part of the UK
They are divided into two British Crown Dependencies, the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey.
The islands are not part of the United Kingdom or European Union, but rather are possessions of the British Crown with independent administrations. Their inhabitants are British citizens.

It is a self governing part of the UK.
