    Hi,

    I would go with the first one!. It sounds to me better if it is like "I would like to do a Ph.D in Computer Science from abroad".

    Re: Which sentence is right?

    I would prefer to say, "I would like to obtain a PhD. in Computer Science abroad." ("from" is not necessary) OR, "I would like to obtain a doctorate in Computer Science abroad."

    The first sentence implies to me that you want to take a distance education course from a foreign country.
    The second sentence implies that you want to travel to the foreign country to do the course.
