This paper, which is written by an American LJMU-based academic, reflects on the new strategic alliance between LJMU and Southern Connecticut State University.  In particular, in highlighting the experiences likely for LJMU students whilst studying in the USA, it provides a succinct overview of the post-compulsory US education, underlining the different experiences of the US student compared with their UK counterpart.  The paper further emphasises the benefits likely for LJMU students as a result of this alliance.
