You can use what is called an easy out, this is inserted into a hole drilled in the exact centre of the broken stud, there are a few versions, the parallel type is better as it will not tend to expand the stud as you turn it as the tapered helical types tend to do, unfortunately they are not cheap and you normally have to buy a kit, you may be able to hire or loan one.
