Abstract : In this paper we investigate the convergence properties of semi-discretized approximations by Strang splitting method applied to fast-oscillating nonlinear Schr¨odinger equations. In a first step and for further use, we briefly adapt a known convergence result for Strang method in the context of NLS on $T^d$ for a large class of nonlinearities. In a second step, we examine how errors depend on the length of the period $\varepsilon$, the solutions being considered on intervals of fixed length (independent of the period). Our main contribution is to show that Strang splitting with constant step-sizes is unexpectedly more accurate by a factor $\varepsilon$ as compared to established results when the step-size is chosen as an integer fraction of the period, owing to an averaging effect.
