Go to your GP and explain your struggles. Have an idea of what you want to get from them in terms of treatment as well.

You can also get a referral from school/college to external organisations like CAHMS for CBT and they psychologists can probably give you a diagnosis as well.

I did go to my gp, they referred me to a Wellbeing service for aid. The service does not give a diagnosis. The gp said they do not give a diagnosis either but my uni wants me to get one so I can get some support.
I am lost, I feel exhausted, I feel like "support" from people doesn't really help. I have no clue where to go next and what to do to help my anxiety. It affects me on a daily basis. I cant fight it. I have to live with it and it is NOT fun. Leaves me exhausted. Hinders me from doing basic everyday activities like attending full lectures (I can only attend them partly and feel the urge to leave and be left alone). I am unable to talk to people and they think I'm being rude but the truth is I am freaking out inside.

I hate everything but I am trying to keep sane.

Sorry for the spam but if support and gp cannot help then i have NO clue what to do next. I am trying to help myself okay.

I dont know how to explain to my peers that i am not being rude or stuck up, i genuinely think theres something stuck in my throat when people are around and i am unable to speak and i get scared and i want to lock myself up in my room and speak to no one.

I dont know what to do. I miss my family. I'm having financial difficulties and I cant get a job. But I will keep trying. Thank you for reading.
I will do everything I can to help myself but if it doesn't work I have to live like this.

I relate so much with the last two sentences. Only a psychiatrist can diagnose, as far as I'm aware. Because of the capacity of their services being so stretched at the moment, they might want to see evidence that you've tried other things before a referral and if you haven't done that they can reject the referral. Even then you might not see a psychiatrist, but some other professional, such as a mental health nurse.
I have been on 5 different antidepressants, did a year of counselling and half a year of CBT, before getting an emergency referral, which still takes up to four weeks, but in actuality takes longer .

You can usually get support without a diagnosis however, there's evidence the GP can give, which is usually their word in letter form.

What type of support are you looking for from the university?

I could have written this honestly. When you have told your GP, have you made it clear how serious the problem is. I had a problem where I never explained it properly because I was too anxious, so I'm wondering if this could be the case for you too?

GPs can diagnose (especially those with a specialist interest in mental health), but anything that's more complicated than your "standard" depression and anxiety they can't (well they don't tend to). If it's more complicated/severe they tend to refer to MH teams who have psychiatrists.

You can ask your GP to write your university a letter stating the issues you're having as well and that should suffice, so would having outside input from other professionals (e.g. this therapy service).

i have anxiety at times; what i found is not hardcore drugs that are needed. eat a clean diet, stop consuming caffeine and alcohol, go to the gym, cut screen time; dont pointless internet browse or watch hours of youtube, and pornograpy. then on top of that socialise - being lonely is a killer (research shows that we still have a hunter gatherer brain your brain thinks your not in a tribe and the anxiety is a signal to get back into one because if you don't your facing death), face situations rather than running from them. its actually really fukin easy to get over anxiety but no one puts in the effort to do so they just want the pills.

You must go the GP. If you are still in school, go to one of the teachers and they can hook you up with CAHMS who could offer you a diagnosis. However, going to the doctor is probably your best bet.
