Dr Sally Dormer is a specialist medieval art historian and lecturer who gained an MA in Medieval Art History and a PhD on medieval manuscript illumination at the Courtauld Institute, University of London.

The range of lecturers was excellent. I only watch on demand as I work full time but like being able to break the course into smaller chunks to digest and rewind. It's so helpful to have on demand access on the same day and after the course ended. Previous V&A Academy Online Student
