well, ummm I was born here lol sorry I just found that funny (maybe that's just me) I'm assuming you were asking those who are american but moved? in England the education system is a bit different I think,I did a national diploma in childcare. The term college can be used over here for a few things, you can have a sixth form college, which you would go to after 16 if you want to stay on. Then a college which I went to which is an establishment which offers a few different studying options. Then you have university, which is what you guys call college I think, here you would study for a degree or a Phd etc, so basically further ed. (that's about right isn't it? fellow english people)

Whether you should travel abroad to study or not is really a matter of personal choice and opportunities arising to do that. I couldn't tell you which system is best cos well this is the only one I've ever known.

For anxiety I think the biggest tip I can give you at the moment is just taking things one step at a time. Set yourself targets which are manageable FOR YOU. Don't bother about what anyone else thinks is "easy" If accepting an invitation to a social event and GOING, staying for five mins then leaving is a big achievement then do that and be proud of yourself
Next time stay for ten minutes. Yes people might think you're a weirdo but hey who cares? lol yeah I know obviously we do care but I think the trick here is to confide in a trusted person who can go with you and give you a bit of support. Anyone who is worth being friends wit at the party, dinner whatever will try to understand your situation.
It's a great step going to see a coucillor, hopefully s/he will talk through with you some options about different therapies you could try. At the moment I'm looking at cognitive behavioural therapy which is pretty useful. Ask about that.
Hope everything works out brilliantly and keep us posted with your progress, whatever road you decide to take
Godbless
