Yes, many EU countries will accept foreign students for specialization training. This depends on 1) your medical credentials, 2) your citizenship(s), 3) your language abilities. This means specifically that you need to know your stuff as a doctor, you need to have a citizenship that will not raise questions with the immigration authorities, and you need to speak the national language.

However, if you are not an EU/UK/EEA citizen, then many countries are essentially out of the question for you. The UK, for example. Switzerland, in most cases. France. Holland. The Scandinavian countries. These countries are generally just not taking non-EU doctors for specialization. Ireland used to be an option, but they recently cut their numbers of training positions significantly, and recruiters there are no longer allowed to work with foreign physicians to fill training positions at all. (There may be possibilities to train as a GP in France if you speak French, but you cannot work in France after you have completed that GP training. There could be possibilities to work in Sweden after completing specialization in another EU country, but you cannot do your specialization in Sweden unless you are Swedish.) As you can see, different EU countries have different requirements.

However, some EU countries may still consider you, such as Germany, but you need to speak German at the B2 level, higher for some specialties.

You ask "how much," which seems to indicate that you expect to pay tuition for your specialization training. In W-EU (indeed, in most of the Western world) this is NOT the case. You receive a salary for your work as a specialist in training, and you do NOT pay any tuition.

Now, if you are unsuccessful in finding a position in W-EU, there are E-EU countries that will likely accept you, but they DO charge tuition, and the rates vary. You would need to check with the different medical universities themselves to get the current costs, but at my university they charge foreign specialists 5000 Euros per year, plus 3700 Euros for a Bulgarian language course (that is 2011/2012 data, it is probably more expensive this year).

This is a complete waste of money, in my opinion, unless you have absolutely NO chance of getting a position in W-EU.

Check with the countries and universities that interest you, and I wish you good luck.

DevilDoc, thank you indeed for ur very useful info...in the West E, I think Germany seems a very good option to me. Though learning German is tough but it can be handled with hard work and determination. But I believe learning the language in any EW country can be as challenging as German...So, learning a new language (that country's language) is mandatory regardless which country you go....except that in Germany , u are paid, while in the EW , you have to pay...Right?

Yes, you need to speak the language of your patient base no matter where you go.

Yes, in most of W-EU you are paid for your work, and in most of E-EU you have to pay for the privilege of letting them abuse you.
