Chinese students first began attending the UW-Madison in the early 1900s and formed a Chinese students association in 1912. Today, the largest group of international students at UW-Madison comes from the People's Republic of China (2,460 for fall 2013, which is 41 % of all international students for that semester). Currently, the University enrolls about 2,700 degree-seeking students from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. Additionally, about 300 students study modern and classical Chinese each year at UW-Madison, which has been offering doctoral degrees on China-related topics since 1924.
