I want to study Dentistry or Medicine abroad at another country rather than the UK but i dont know the requirements. Could you provide me with some sources to look at such as websites like UCAS but for studying abroad.

If you're looking for the ones that have easy admissions, look for the ones in the Caribbean. The best 4 are St. Georges, AUC, Ross and Saba. Most of them render you eligible for qualification as a Doctor in the US and Canada, but I am not sure about your eligibility in the UK, so you would have to look that Up. Some schools in Poland and Hungary offer MD programs in English as well, but the admissions for those tend to be harder and if you don't have an undergraduate degree, they're 6 years long. I hope this helped.

You won't get cheap in the Caribbean as they get a lot of Americans st georges Grenada is something like 20000 per year!
If you want cheap look at republic of Ireland (but you'll need at least 4A's at A2), or Romania, Estonia, Prague, Germany, Italy, Holland. Many countries teach in English some you might have to learn but the majority listed above teach in English

The requirements are not as high as the requirements as the UK unis. However you need to think about how much debt it will leave you in, the fact that there is a HUGE drop out rate at these unis, you need to learn a new language, you will have to work in that country before being able to work in the UK since from this year VT placements will be given to UK grads before any EU graduate.

In the UK when you graduate you do a foundation year under a senior dentist. You are then a 'real' dentist. Previously, EU grads were able to apply for these foundation years just as UK grads however now UK grads have priority and then EU grads are able to take the places remaining(if there are any). For this reason its highly unlikely you're going to get a job as a dentist in the UK after having no experience of working as a dentist.
Rules and regulations are always changing and so its a huge risk you're going to be taking. Not to mention the fact that most countries atm want to leave the EU, in which your chances of getting a job in the UK are near impossible.

If i do that foundation year in the country i graduate for example Plovdiv Uni in Bulgaria, and then come over to the UK and do some more work experience do you think my chances would be higher?

I don't know how it works in bulgaria in terms of graduate dentists getting jobs. Although to do that you would have to be fluent in their language WHILST studying one of the most difficult courses in the world. Its a lot to take in and you dont seem like you've done enough research.

I need to make sure i know everything first before making the big decision of moving abroad to study Dentistry because its not a simple and easy decision as you might know. Do you know any websites that would help me find some information please?

Unfortunately I don't know any websites that would help you with this. The websites that advertise going abroad will make it seem better than it is for obvious reasons. Im sorry but I dont know where you could get reliable information since it seems a lot is up in the air.

Just look up the requirements on the websites of lots of European universities (since they have lower fees).

There's an entire thread here on TSR about medicine at the Uni of Malta which has no fees for EU citizens.
