Objective 3.5: Create and configure a User Profile service (UPA) application

The User Profile service (UPA) application is a collection of databases and functionality focused on individual users in a SharePoint 2013 installation. This functionality can be limited in scope to a single farm or made available across multiple SharePoint farms in the enterprise.

This service is used to provide user profiles, profile synchronization with enterprise directory services, audiences, the My Site host and individual My Sites, and social notes and tagging.
