a) find a university that offers that course. Most will offer straight economics or politics but I'm not sure how many will offer combined.
b) visit the universities to see what they're like. Forget about league tables, or take them with a whole pile of salt. never pick a university solely based on league tables. You'll get a more honest view of social life there.
c)Where would you be happiest? Warwick is quite a small campus uni, with most 2nd and 3rd years commuting. Edinburgh is a massive university in a capital city. York and Nottingham are in the middle - campus universities but close enough to cities (UEA, and sussex are campus too). I believe Bristol is more spread out but I'm sure one of their alumni can correct me if I'm wrong
d) See if what they offer you chimes with your own interests - not just academic but societal as well
