I was wondering if this term is an expression.
For example youe friend says that he wants to go to The Oxford University and you tell him ''High hopes''
Re: High hopes
As a standalone phrase, no. It's usually used to show that someone has strong expectations that something will/might happen.

In your example, what did you mean by "High hopes" as you wrote it? Did you mean "I think that you have high (possibly unrealistic?) expectations"?
