Boyfriend says he still loves me but wants to break up?

My boyfriend and I have been dating for more than a year. In a few weeks' time, I'm leaving the country for university.

Two days ago, my boyfriend expressed his concern about LDR and for our future if we continue our relationship (how he's worried he might get jealous if I meet other guys for projects, how he is not mature enough to do taxes and all, how our relationship might affect our future career, etc.).

We're now on a break, he wants some time to himself to decide on whether to continue our relationship or to break it off. If we break it off, he wants us to still be best friends (while ignoring our feelings for one another, which I think might not work). He claims that he still loves me (I still love him too), but he has doubts about our future and would prefer to break it off now.

Guys and girls, what are your thoughts on this?

What makes me really upset is the fact that he doesn't want to give it a shot, but I understand his part of the concern as well.
